Community Expungement Clinic and Cannabis Business Resource Fair

  • Golden Gate University School of Law (map)

Come join SSDP at GGU Law for a day of Education andOpportunities for Communities Affected by the War on Drugs.

The first component is an equity expungement clinic hosted by law students and supervised by volunteer attorneys. This first step is crucial to removing the stigma that a criminal convictions has on a person seeking to find employment or start a new business. We will be helping individuals fill out applications on, then we will be taking SSDP “field trips” to the SF Public Defender’s Clean Slate Program to conduct Expungement and Record Reduction “clearing houses” for those eligible who have submitted applications.

Second, is the education component. During this section we will educate attendees on writing a business plan, avoiding the pit falls of bad equity deals, and the other first steps to starting a business under the new state cannabis regulations. One hour of this education component will be a legal panel dedicated to answering some of these initial questions.

Third, we will have a resource fair for those individuals looking to start a business or just find out more about participating in the new adult-use industry.
