An event will be held on July 30 that could be useful to renters, to anyone in need of a job, or who needs a clean slate and a second chance after a brush with the law.

The Career and Tenant Forum features Judge Brendan Murphy, who did substantial work on helping renters navigate the eviction process through the pandemic, Cobb Legal Aid, which specializes in tenants rights issues, and the team of Cobb District Attorney Flynn Broady, who will help citizens navigate through the process of restricting and sealing eligible criminal records.
