On April 13, 2019, the Access to Justice (A2J) Committee of the Judicial Council of Georgia partnered with the State Bar Access to Justice Committee and the Georgia Justice Project to host an expungement clinic in Albany Georgia at Mt. Zion Baptist Church.   287 people were assisted in some way with their criminal records.
