ICADV to host expungement clinic for survivors in southern Indiana

The Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence and its member programs in Evansville, Albion Fellows Bacon Center and the YWCA, will partner with CareSource, Indiana Legal Services, Promise Zone and IU McKinney’s LEAP Clinic will host an Expungement Clinic in southern Indiana for survivors of domestic violence.

Date: November 8, 2019

Time: 12 pm to 4 pm

Location: Work One Southwest | 700 E Walnut St, Evansville, IN 47713

Cost: Free

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with a law student or an attorney to see if they are eligible for expungement and to make a plan to work toward sealing or removing their charges from their records.

The event will include a community resource fair, including employers who will hire people with prior criminal charges, and social service organizations in Vanderburgh County who may be able to offer different types of assistance.

“Survivors have told us that they need resources like these to help them on their path toward self-sufficiency and stability,” said ICADV Legal Counsel Kerry Hyatt Bennett. “We hope to see at least 150 people at this event.”

Any organizations that would be interested in coming and sharing their information with the community, as well as any employers who will hire people who have had prior felony charges, should contact Bennett at kbennett@icadvinc.org.
