Begin Again Event @9:00AM
September 21 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
This Friday, Sept. 21 & Saturday, Sept. 22. Join @BrooklynDA & @LRBC_Online for a new program to erase any misdemeanor marijuana convictions you may have.9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lenox Road Baptist Church for Begin Again 2018. Please share this valuable info.
Begin Again gives Brooklyn residents an opportunity to deal with summonses for low-level offenses quickly and easily right in their community.
In addition to offering participants support as they navigate the process of resolving their warrants, we will also host a neighborhood resource fair outside the Church during the hours of the event. We have received the commitment of many local community-based organizations that will be present to offer vital information related to job training, legal issues, and health.
On Friday, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced a new program to erase misdemeanor marijuana convictions. This is a big deal, and part of his promise to enhance fairness and equity so past convictions don’t continue to hold people back into the future.
The program – which is one of the recommendations DA Gonzalez adopted as part of his Justice 2020 Initiative – will run in partnership with The Legal Aid Society, Center on the Administration of Criminal Law, Brooklyn Defender Services, and Brooklyn Law School. Visit https://bit.ly/2wSgbGc
We encourage anyone who may be eligible for this important relief to take advantage of this opportunity at Begin Again on Friday, September 21 and Saturday, September 22 at Lenox Road Baptist Church.
