On May 20, 2017, the Social Action Committee of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., chaired by Donyale Stephen-Atara and Sharon Wilson, hosted an Expungement Assistance Fair. In collaboration with the Detroit Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, the fair also included the Wayne County Friend of the Court, a job resource tent, free ICHAT services, and many dedicated pro bono attorneys.
The Expungement Assistance Fair was very successful and was an excellent opportunity for attorneys to help their community and provide pro bono legal assistance to many fellow residents of Detroit. Lakeshore Legal Aid (LLA) also provided legal assistance and aided with criminal background checks, funded by a special grant received by LLA
Many thanks to the attorneys who volunteered and helped prepare expungement petitions for the many participating Detroit residents.
