Pathway to Pardons (P2P)PATHWAYS PIC

ツPathways to Pardons (P2P) isツan education, training and outreach campaign on the pardonsツprocess and its窶 improvements, including expungement andツsealing of criminal records, that will benefit all communitiesツthroughout the Commonwealth of PA.

Does your criminal record make you feel hopeless? Is it hindering your ability to move forward with your life despite the many positive changes you have made?

It is our hope that throughツthis initiative, individuals in sustained recovery will be better ableツto understand and navigate the pardons process. Moreツinformation regarding this initiative will be forthcoming on theツPennsylvaniaツBoard ofツPardons websiteツas well as the PRO窶「A webpage dedicated to the Pathway to Pardons initiative.

Remembering Lives Lost:ツThe Our Lives MatterツMemorial Quilt Project

It is time we put names and faces together in a patchwork made up of those who have lost their lives to addiction because Our Lives Matter too!
This project will serve to bring awareness to the largest national health crisis of our time 窶 substance use disorders and the disease of addiction 窶 which have been ignored and stigmatized by all segments of society for far too long. ツ

As we exit National Recovery Month 2016, a time to celebrate the 23.5 millionツAmericansツliving in recovery, we still need to remember that there are 23.5 million more who have not yet found recovery.ツFor these individuals, our fellow Pennsylvanians, our children, our loved ones –ツ1 in 10 Pennsylvanians will pass away each day. If you have lost a loved one we extend an invitation to keep their memory alive and to make their voices heard.

To learn more about panel making or The OUR LIVES MATTER Project, call Stephanie Hastings at 717-545-8929 ext 3.
