My passion is start my own business working with ex-offender. Yes I am one myself living it everyday. I believe people coming together can make different in the law in Ga that holds ex-offender back. We can't get housing, jobs and some case education.

Well here is something that you can try. It will not work for all charges but most minor charges it will work. You can research to see if can be expunged or sealed or pardoned. It an Criminal Record Expungement Kit. Its not an overnight process and will take a couple of months for the state to respond and remove things from your record. They don't care about people because the state system is a business just like every other business. Most people don't even know you can have charges removed from your criminal record and don't know where to even begin the process. Hope it helps. It only is for Georgia.
