Just City and C.L.I.M.B. Partnering to Host Expungement Clinic

Just City and C.L.I.M.B. (Creating Lifetime Independence Moving Barriers) of Riverside Missionary Baptist Church (The River) will host an expungement clinic on Saturday, November 10 from 10AM2PM.

By providing an expungement clinic, the organizations seek to improve the lives of Shelby County citizens whose past criminal history could bar them from obtaining employment, securing housing, or qualifying for a loan for a car, home, or education.

One of C.L.I.M.B.’s leaders, Tammy Cowan was inspired to bring the expungement clinic to the 38109 zip code because it’s necessary to help to eliminate poverty by empowering people to take steps to improve their own lives.
Initiating an expungement clinic by partnering with Just City is one way our organization can make a major impact in the community. By eliminating barriers in our workforce, many people have an opportunity to become self-sufficient, obtain fulfilling careers and housing to support their families. Also, recidivism rates are lowered, stated C.L.I.M.B. director Amber Covington”.

Inspired by the work of the Shelby County Public Defender’s Office, Just City was founded in 2015 by a group of activists, attorneys, and civic leaders. Just City’s mission is to advance policies and programs within Shelby County and the State of Tennessee that strengthen the right to counsel and mitigate the damage caused to families and neighborhoods as a result of contact with the criminal justice system.

C.L.I.M.B., a workforce and economic development program; mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty, and oppression by helping build secure, productive, and just communities by promoting career and economic growth in 38109 and 38116.
