National Expungement Week (N.E.W.) is a week of events across the U.S. that offers free expungement and other forms of legal relief to some of the 77 million Americans with convictions on their records. These convictions can restrict access to housing, employment, education, public assistance, and voting rights long after sentences have been served.  N.E.W. events will offer as many wraparound services as possible to restore people’s rights and lift up communities.
