The event is composed of three parts:  reduction of criminal records, business education, and a resource fair. The first component is an expungement clinic where law students and volunteer attorneys will help individuals fill out expungement applications. Second is the education component. During this section, attorneys and business experts will educate attendees on writing a business plan and the other first steps to starting a cannabis business under state and local regulations.  The education portion will be followed by a cannabis business resource fair where businesses and community organizations will network and provide resources to equity applicants who want to participate in the newly regulated industry.This is a FREE event.  Register on Eventbrite at Contact for more info.
