Criminal expungement discussed during 'Harriet Tubman Virtual Social Justice Forum'

The Black Women Lawyers Association of Michigan (BWLAM) will host the “Harriet Tubman Virtual Social Justice Forum: Michigan Criminal Expungement” on Thursday, Feb. 4 online from 6 to 8 p.m.

The forum is a bi-annual event hosted by BWLAM. This year the online event focuses on Michigan’s new criminal expungement law.

This three-part event will begin with a panel discussion by Michigan legislators and lawyers providing a breakdown of Michigan’s criminal expungement law.

The second part will honor lawyers making a difference in their communities.

The final portion will be a panel discussion by people who have gotten or are in the process of getting criminal expungements.

The forum is an event geared towards members of the general public and those in the legal community. Additionally, as a way to help participants who attend the event because of their need for expungement services, there will be a random giveaway of a free expungement consultation to a participant in need.
