PA Pardon System: A Road Out of Poverty

May 17, 2021

Despite the very best efforts of so many over many years, Philadelphia remains the poorest big city in America. There’s one program that could bring millions into distressed neighborhoods, for free, but none of us are taking advantage of it: Pardons.

Pennsylvania may have the most progressive pardon system in the country.  The Economy League has called pardons a “no-cost community development and neighborhood investment policy”. Their April 2020 study showed $16.5 million flowing across Pennsylvania, most going to low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.

With tens of thousands of potential recipients, Philadelphia saw fewer than 50 apply last year.  Join us on Monday, May 17th at 9am for a conversation with people who have helped to revolutionize the system and from those who have used it. Plan to brainstorm and leave with ideas for how to take advantage of what is an amazing opportunity.
