MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Metropolitan Baptist Church will host “Restoration Saturday” this weekend to help people who want their criminal records expunged or those who need help getting a drivers license reinstated.
Pastor Reginald Porter explained why he wanted his congregation to help.
“There are so many people of color, African-Americans, who’ve been incarcerated in the justice system and lost citizenship rights,” said Pastor Reginald Porter of the Metropolitan Baptist Church. “That means you can’t be a provider for your family and can’t take care of your children.”
District Attorney General Amy Weirich said she and others from her office will be there to give advice for expungement. Also officials from the Tennessee Department of Safety will be there to help with drivers licenses.
