Seeking to have something removed from your police record can be a lengthy and stressful process if you don’t understand the process, but this weekend the Eta Omicron Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and the Winston-Salem and High Point branches of the NAACP, and Top Ladies of Distinction Guilford County are hosting an event designed to equip individuals with the knowledge to navigate the system.

The process to have an incident expunged from your record includes multiple steps involving the court system, the arresting agency, and the State Bureau of Investigation. The expungement process begins with filing a petition form in the county the incident occurred.

A petitioner is not required to hire an attorney to assist with the expungement process; it is the petitioner’s choice to hire legal representation.

During the virtual do it yourself  (DIY) expungement guide clinic on Saturday, April 30, Attorney Nicole Little will be offering counseling regarding eligibility for removing incidents. Chair of the connection and social action committee, Quamekia Shavers said they decided to host the expungement to give individuals a chance at a better way of life.

“We wanted to inform the community about the opportunity to clear their record to increase the possibility of job offers, educational advancement and rental applications,” Shavers said. “Visible but dismissed charges can still create room for discrimination through application processes.”

The Expungement DIY Guide Clinic is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. To join the virtual event, follow the link Visit the Eta Omnicron Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Facebook page for more information.
