McClinton, to co-host Pathway to Pardons and Expungements Resource Fair

PHILDELPHIA, Sept. 14 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, will join state Sen. Anthony Williams and Lt. Gov. Mike Stack for a resource fair designed to inform constituents about the possibilities of clearing their name from minor past convictions.

The Re-entry Resource Fair: Pathways to Pardons and Expungements will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28 at the Francis J. Myers Recreation Center, 5800 Chester Ave., 19143.

McClinton said constituents can learn how the pardon process works in Pennsylvania and how they can seek a pardon for past convictions.

“Many people have fallen on hard times as a result of a minor conviction that keeps haunting them,” McClinton said. “I believe this workshop will help constituents find a way to clear that conviction from their name and set them on the right path.”

McClinton added many local agencies will be on hand with valuable information that focuses on reentry.

Anyone who is looking for an expungement for free should call Sen. Williams’ office at (215) 492-2980 to RSVP.
