National Expungement Week (N.E.W.) is a week of events across the U.S. that offers expungement and other forms of legal relief to some of the 77 million Americans with convictions on their records. These convictions can restrict access to housing, employment, education, public assistance, and voting rights long after sentences have been served.
The Austin Justice Coalition will be hosting this event in partnership with the UT Law Clinic to offer complimentary criminal record-sealing education and a roadmap to record-sealing for those that qualify. Easy Expunctions will help with providing eligibility reports on site. We will have legal advisors onsite to help answer questions.
Voter registration and information about employment and licensing opportunities will also be available to the public.
