Holiday Rush to the Weekend

COP 24/7 Update to the End

The days are clicking away as we prepare to celebrate our 10 year run and close out COP 24/7 come September 1. Its truly been a amazing and interesting outing, using this platform that I had no real clue as to what it was all about when I started. I simply had no clue because it was something new and not many folks knew. However since then and now reaching some 1,371 postings, enough is enough. Have we said it all, no. But have we explored a variety of topics, you betcha! Do we have more to say before it's all over, well of course. Along the way it will be our goal to engage as many other voices on this platform. I have been totally open that this digital town square is here for the taking, even when we had no takers. With all that said, let the count down continue as we keep it coming until time runs out...
Expungement Clinic Scheduled
To give back to our communities, attorneys with the W. Harold Flowers Law Society and legal aid are offering to create expungement legal documents for low-income Arkansans for free.

The Expungement Clinic will take place on Fri., May 29, 2015 in Little Rock between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. It will be in the Goodwill Little Rock Outlet Center located at 7400 Scott Hamilton Drive.
You will have the chance to meet with attorneys who can help you seal your criminal records (also known as expungement).

Sexual offenders whose victims were under the age of 18 years are not eligible to have the offense expunged. You must be sentenced under a statute that allows for expungement and must have completed all the terms and conditions of your probation.

Webinar: Breaking Regulatory Barriers for Greater Female Condom Access

A variety of safe and effective female condoms currently exist. However, regulatory hurdles limit new products from entering consumer markets. With the pipeline of new receptive-partner initiated condoms growing, advocates must understand how regulatory issues determine product introduction and approval in their country.

• Receptive partner-initiated condoms in development
• Link between regulatory environment and female condom access
• Current regulatory issues and obstacles
• Unique advocacy opportunity to break barriers to existing female condoms and pave the way for emerging internal condoms

Panelists will include:
Mags Beksinska, Director, MatCH Research
Coco Jervis, Program Director, National Women’s Health Network
Jessica Terlikowski, Director of Prevention Technology Education, AIDS Foundation of Chicago & National Female Condom Coalition
