On July 18, 2019, VLN and its partners hosted its first-ever criminal expungement clinic exclusively for survivors of sex trafficking, sexual violence and domestic violence.

In all, 14 attorneys helped 27 clients file 7 petitions for criminal expungement, and three attorneys took on case for extended representation!

We are very proud of these early results and to work with such amazing partners.
