Events during COVID-19 

Before COVID-19, PLSE’s calendar was packed with events in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods where you could get information and advice: presentations, “one-stops,” training programs, intakes, workshops, clinics… We are eager to get back out to help you in person (when we do, we will post all events here), but in the meantime, we’re using tech to connect.

“Office Hours”

PLSE is holding virtual Walk-In Wednesdays each week. Our attorneys will be available online to answer your questions about criminal records, how you can get rid of them, and what your rights are in the meantime.


Social Media

Because more and more people are (justifiably) concerned about the quality of justice, we have greatly increased our use of social media. Learn about new developments by following us on Twitter @plsephilly, Instagram @plse_philly, and Facebook @plsephilly.

Pardon Hubs

PLSE is continuing to train community non-profits to provide one on one pardon assistance to their own community members. Check out the list of pardon hubs and what they do.

Visit Our Video Library!

We have five kinds of videos—all short—that you can watch any day, any time:

  • General Info – General information regarding criminal records, expungements and pardons.
  • People Change – how people have turned their lives around and deserve a second chance
  • Your Rights – shorts talks on topics you might be interested in
  • The Pardon Process – coaching from people who have been through it
  • The Pardon Application – tips from lawyers who volunteer for us on how to do the best job you can filling out the pardon application

“Know Your Rights” Talks

We have added several videos to our Video Library page, and we bet we’ve answered your question. But we will soon start hosting a “live” talk at least twice each month, when we’ll answer your questions on things like:

  • What to do when employers, landlords, credit agencies or banks use your criminal records against you,
  • How to get rid of your criminal records,
  • Your right to vote and how to register, and
  • What goes on with pardons and expungements.

The first Know Your Rights talk took place August 11th. Stay tuned — the next talk will be announced soon! Contact us at info@plsephilly.org if you have any questions about these talks.

EXPUNGEMENT INTAKES

PLSE is continuing to file expungements on behalf of our clients. Although hearings are delayed because of COVID, we are still accepting new clients for expungement! If you have a criminal record in Philadelphia County that you’d like to have cleaned up, click here to start the process.
