On July 28, 2017, Gov. Roy Cooper signed into law Senate Bill 445. This law reduces the wait time for criminal record expungement for first-time, non-violent offenders. Student members for the Veterans Assistance Project (VAP) will receive an overview of the new law and then receive training on the expunction process. These newly acquired skills will be put into use on Friday, September 15 at the Annual Bull City Stand Down. This is a one-day, one-stop event providing an abundance of services including medical and legal assistance to homeless and under-resourced military veterans. Sponsored by the Office of Public Interest and Pro Bono. Please RSVP to this link https://goo.gl/forms/181aNuM6t01E8Btx1 by 2:00pm on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
