Wake County Reentry and Expunction Resource Fair

To everyone who volunteered and Participated
on October 18
Macedonia New Life Church
2004 Rock Quarry Rd
Raleigh, NC 27610
This fair is open to all justice-involved individuals and their supporters!

If you have been involved with the criminal justice system in Wake County, there will be resources present to help connect you and your family to assistance and community service providers.  

Additionally, volunteer lawyers will be present to explain North Carolina expunction law and also to screen attendees to determine whether they may be eligible to participate in a free expunction clinic in early 2019.

To be clear, no criminal records will be expunged on October 13, 2018; rather, a screening will be performed to determine whether attendees are eligible for the expunction clinic.

Community Partners from housing, employment, healthcare, and human services will be on site to help guests connect with services.

Legal services for the 2018-19 expungement screening represent volunteers from the following organizations:

  • Wake County District Attorney’s Office
  • Legal Aid of North Carolina
  • NC Advocates for Justice
  • NC Justice Center
  • Wake County Bar Association
  • Blanchard Community Law Clinic of Campbell Law School
  • NC Pro Bono Resource Center
  • Southern Coalition for Social Justice
  • Wake County Public Defender’s Office

If you are interested in an expungement screening, it may be helpful (but is not required) for you to obtain and review a copy of your criminal record prior to attending the event. You will need to be familiar with your record to answer screening questions. You can obtain a free copy of your criminal record in Room 1000 of the Wake County Justice Center located at 300 S Salisbury St, Raleigh, NC 27601. You do not need to bring a copy of your record to the event.
