Today we wanted to share a wonderful resource put together by the East Bay Community Law Center’s Clean Slate Practice. It is a map showing reentry legal services, mainly in the form of expungement clinics, across the state, divided by county. For anyone looking for a chance to expunge their record, or learn about whether they are eligible for expungement, we recommend that you check out the map to view what legal services are near you or in your county.
We also wanted to highlight an upcoming legal clinics happening in the Bay Area. Legal clinics are a one-day event where legal organizations (usually through a group of attorneys and volunteers) see a large number of people who have questions about their record, expungement, and other issues in reentry. If you have legal questions pertaining to your legal rights in reentry, we encourage you to go to one of these upcoming clinics!
