LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (August 16, 2016) – The City of Little Rock’s Racial and Cultural Diversity Commission will hold a community justice workshop Thursday, Aug. 25, aimed at helping those who were formerly incarcerated re-integrate back into the community.
Previously incarcerated persons face a variety of challenges upon exiting the prison system, including how to access services. Through this workshop, attendees will learn about how to restore their voting rights, expunge their record, apply for a pardon and find employment opportunities.
Presenters at the workshop will include:
- Pulaski County Clerk’s Office – Voting rights restoration
- Maximillan Sprinkle, private attorney – Expungement
- Kelly Eichler, Governor’s Office – Clemency process (Pardons)
- Keith Alexander, Community Programs re-entry coordinator - City of Little Rock Sidewalk Program
The workshop will also serve as a venue for voter registration for those who are eligible.
The free workshop will take place from 6 – 7: 30 p.m. at the Willie L. Hinton Neighborhood Resource Center. Refreshments will be provided.
