COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & PERFORMANCES:
JUVENILE WARRANT FORGIVENESS DAY AND COMMUNITY RESOURCE FAIR
Hennepin County District Court is partnering with community-based and court partners to hold a Juvenile Warrant Forgiveness Day and Community Resource Fair on Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 10 am to 2 pm at the office building located at 1256 Penn Avenue in North Minneapolis, formerly known as the “Thor Building.”
During the event, individuals with outstanding warrants will have the opportunity to speak with a public defender or prosecutor, arrange to pay outstanding fines, or have a hearing before a judge regarding their warrant. In addition to local judges and court staff, representatives from the Hennepin County Public Defender’s Office, Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, and Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation will be on site during the event.
The event is intended to simplify the process of resolving an outstanding warrant, with the goal of helping people avoid being arrested or detained for having an outstanding warrant. Local justice partners will make their best efforts to resolve an individual’s case or cases during the event.
Grace member Bev Benson will be attending as a volunteer, and invites anyone who wishes to attend with her in that capacity. Please contact Bev directly for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
