Dear Coalition of African American Leaders (COAL),
the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County is hosting its annual Adult and Juvenile Criminal Records Expungement Summit:
“Second Chance Expungement Summit 2019”
Saturday, June 1, 2019
Westinghouse College Preparatory High School
3223 W. Franklin Blvd., Chicago, IL,
8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
I am aware of the strong community relationships you have and ask that you share the following information with any of your partner organizations that work directly with the ex-offender population. This summit presents an accessible opportunity within the community for individuals to expunge or seal criminal records that are often unfairly used as barriers to employment and other second chance opportunities, with particular disparate negative impact on black men.
Over several annual Expungement Summits I’ve held, hundreds of individuals have successfully expunged or sealed their criminal records, leading to a real sense of hope that a second and better chance at improving the quality of life for them and their family can be achieved.
Thank you for your support and for being a strong asset for the community. All participants must register this year. Please see the flyer attached for Registration information, as well as a Registration link.
Clerk of the Circuit Court
