National Expungement Week, N.E.W., is a movement for the liberation of justice-impacted communities. Through our holistic year-round programming including legal relief, wraparound services, and advocacy for expanded access to expungement, we build and restore pathways for generational healing and wealth.
We partner with the cannabis industry to repair the harm caused by the war on drugs, but we are not cannabis-exclusive. We espouse that any person whose record can be expunged, sealed, and/or reclassified, should have access, and that by doing so we reduce the urgency to reoffend.
