MANCHESTER — A three-hour workshop that focuses on wiping criminal records clean will take place Wednesday in Manchester.

The NAACP and New Hampshire Bar Association are hosting the workshop at the Community Resource Center, 434 Lake Ave., from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Participants will get a chance to meet one-on-one with a volunteer lawyer to give them advice.

According to criminal defense lawyer Donna Brown, new laws make it easier to annul criminal records.

The New Hampshire Law Library and Granite United Way are also participating in the effort.
