Law school Civil Rights Clinic attorneys to participate in "Pathways 2 Pardons"
People with criminal backgrounds can get help clearing their records at an event in Wilkinsburg Tuesday evening at the Hosanna House from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Attendees at "Pathways 2 Pardons" can receive free background checks and talk with state troopers about whether to ask the governor for a pardon. Attorneys from the law school's Civil Rights Clinic are set to help attendees explore the possibility of clearing their records through expungement.
"It just eliminates so much stress and confusion and things that are maybe intimidating when it comes to navigating through these legal systems," event organizer Taili Thompson said.
