PARDON WORKSHOPS

TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Are you being held back by an old Pennsylvania conviction that is preventing you from accessing employment, housing, education or other opportunities? Now may be the time for you to consider applying for a pardon.

Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity (PLSE) will be holding introductory pardon workshops to provide information on Pennsylvania’s pardon process. Participants will be introduced to the pardon application and given an overview of the full process. We will review eligibility and criteria for a strong application along with tips on how to navigate each step.

If a pardon is not right for you at this time, we will also review other methods of clearing your criminal record and provide tips on how to move forward with your life in the meantime. Participants will also learn about creation, dissemination and destruction of criminal records in general and their rights when it comes to the use of their criminal records. There will be time for a Q&A at the end. Due to limited space, we have capped event registration at 40 participants.
