The Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will host an Expungement Resource Fair on Feb. 22 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Douglass Memorial Community Church.

Did you know that over 80 percent of employers conduct a criminal background search on their employee candidates?  Did you know that most housing application reviews require a criminal background check? The stigma of having an arrest or a conviction record against your name can make it difficult for you to find housing, seek employment opportunities and obtain grants for school. Fortunately, there is a legal procedure that helps you get your criminal record expunged.

The Resource Fair will include free legal consultants to assist community members in taking the steps to clear their criminal records. In addition, social services and employment resources and information will be available. 

Walk-ins are also encouraged to come to the Douglass Memorial Community Church located at 1325 Madison Ave. Baltimore, Md. 21217. For more information: Adeline Hutchinson, Connections Chair,
