The Formerly Convicted Citizens Project (FCCP) is a 501(c)3 non-proft, non-partisan organization that works to mitigate the barriers and encourage the full participation in society of citizens with criminal records. The FCCP is premised on the belief that once a person has successfully paid their debt to society, they should be afforded the opportunities to once again become responsible and fully engaged in civic life. Paramount to these opportunities is employment.

With this in mind, the central component of the FCCP’s work is to provide the resources necessary for persons with criminal records to navigate the complex expungment and pardon processes to which they are legally eligible pursue.

Pardon Me Workshops

"Pardon Me" workshops are held monthly to give persons with criminal records to the tools and information on how to navigate the expungement and/or pardon processes. This workshop is free and open to the public, and strongly encouraged for persons with criminal records or their loved ones.    More »
