Clean Slate Lexington allows residents who have had run-ins with the law a second chance by expunging their criminal record. An expungement erases, destroys or seals your criminal record. By eliminating your criminal record, new opportunities are available for jobs, financial aid for education and even housing, as old convictions and unproven charges can still show up on background checks. An expungement provides the opportunity to have your voting rights restored.
Attending the Clean Slate Lexington Expungement Clinic and Job Fair is the first step in obtaining felony and misdemeanor expungement. Regional employers will also be at the fair looking to hire for open positions.
The City of Lexington, along with partner organizations, is focused on helping participants, knowing a person's background can have a negative impact on securing stable employment, housing and other basic needs. The fair will address economic barriers to equity in several areas of our community including education, housing, justice, workforce and health.
