Breaking Barriers Employment Fair on October 18 at Richland Library

Breaking Barriers Expungement Workshop

Criminal records often create a barrier to employment, even after time has been served and fines paid.  As part of the Breaking Barriers Employment and Resource Fair, Richland Library will host an expungement workshop, to help those with criminal records find ways to manage this employment barrier. 

What Will You Receive:

  1. Education about the expungement and pardon process
  2. An opportunity to talk, one-on-one, to an attorney from SC Appleseed and SC Legal Services after the workshop
  3. An opportunity to receive a free copy of your SLED background check. This initiative is being funded by a grant from the United Way. 

All of this is offered free of charge to those who register and attend. Click the event link below to register. Registration and SLED background reports are limited so please register early. 

After the workshop attendees will be able to attend the Breaking Barriers Employment and Resource Fair to meet with employers who are in the hiring process for individuals with barriers to employment. 

Professional dress is encouraged. If you need assistance with business clothing or you have any questions or need more information, please contact Lee Patterson at Richland Library at 231-6383 or Karina Henry at the United Way at 733-5115.
