Low-income Philadelphians with criminal records are being denied jobs, housing, credit, education, trade licenses, and other opportunities for which they are qualified. Those records are helping to keep families in poverty for generations. The only way to get a conviction taken off a criminal record is by getting a pardon from the Governor. People need help telling their stories.

We are holding a one-hour meeting led by Tobey Oxholm, Director of the Pardon Project of the Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity, who will explain the pardon process and train us that day. You can read about the Pardon Project here. RSVP to Alicia Broudy by January 19.
