The Birmingham Roundtable Hosts the First Annual Community Reentry and Restoration Summit

The Birmingham Roundtable is hosting its First Annual Community Reentry and Restoration Summit on Saturday, April 24, 2010 at the Boutwell Auditorium, 1930 8th Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203-2204 from 10 am to 4 pm. The Summit will assist adults with juvenile criminal records with reentry support services relating to their employment, housing, and education. The Birmingham Roundtable, supervised law clerks, and legal volunteers will be available on site to advise people about their eligibility to seal their juvenile criminal records. Our goal is to provide Birmingham residents with full community reentry.

Community Reentry and Restoration Summit 2010 serves as a significant opportunity to “sound the alarm” regarding the needs of many people who have lived productive and crime-free lives since adulthood and are in need of full restoration of citizenship without the stigma of a criminal history. We are partnering with the City of Birmingham Division of Youth Services, The Ministerial Brotherhood Ministries, Lawson State Community College, The Dannon Project and Jefferson County Family Court who will provide information, and some will offer private consultations with participants and their family members. Importantly, all services available at the Summit will be provided FREE of charge.

Participants will also be able to receive free instruction on sealing juvenile records, job placement and other pertinent services.
