By Toni Newborn, Interim Assistant Director – Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights
For the second time this summer, the Department of Civil Rights will be participating in Second Chance Saturdays, a workshop and resource day hosted by the Council on Crime and Justice and the Criminal Justice League. This workshop event will help people learn how to expunge their criminal history and empower the attendees to advocate for their employment rights. Civil Rights Department staff will be present to give attendees the opportunity to file civil rights and police misconduct complaints with the City.
The event will take place at the Kwanzaa Community Church located at 3700 Bryant Ave. N. on July 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. This event marks an important partnership with the Council on Crime and Justice to serve the needs of Minneapolis residents.
