Quote from Joliet Councilman Cesar Guerrero: “If you believe in the idea of restorative justice and you believe in giving people a second chance, this Record Relief Clinic is an opportunity to make a difference. Far too often, there are barriers to employment, housing, and education for many, even after they have paid their debt to society. The process to reintegrate can be far too complicated. And that’s why we’re working to streamline the expungement process and make an honest life accessible to all.”


Members of the media are invited to attend the Record Relief Clinic to understand the impact on the community and the importance of these services for Will County residents. Interviews with event organizers, legal professionals, and attendees will be available upon request.
