CHICAGO - Honorable Dorothy Brown, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County; Honorable Anthony Calderone, Mayor of Forest Park; Honorable Amy Campanelli, Cook County Public Defender; Dr. Bill Winston, Pastor of Living Word Christian Center; and an array of judicial, governmental, legal, community and religious organizations and agencies, will present the 11th Annual Adult and Juvenile Expungement Summit at Living Word Christian Center, 7600 W. Roosevelt Rd, Forest Park, IL, on Saturday, June 6, 2015; registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
For the past ten years, the extremely successful, full-service, community-based Expungement Summits have attracted 2,500 to 3,000 people each year. Summit attendees are seeking to improve their ability to obtain employment and other opportunities by having expungeable offenses removed from their criminal histories.
At the summit, volunteer attorneys help prepare applications for the filing of petitions that qualify for expungement and sealing through the courts. Individuals who do not qualify for expungement will be able to meet with Illinois Prisoner Review Board members and attorneys to discuss how to obtain executive clemency, including pardons or expungements, from the Illinois Governor. A host of other agencies will provide information on employment, job training, health care, housing, voter registration and other services for ex-offenders.
