One out of three people has a criminal record, and these records continue to hold people back. Even after their sentences end, the consequences don’t. But a solution exists.
Learn more when the Pardon Project of Luzerne County presents the documentary “Pardon Me” by Shuja Moore at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 3, in the Henry Student Center.
Sponsored by the Wilkes-Barre Law & Library Association and Wilkes University, the evening will include a screening of the documentary followed by a panel discussion about the necessity of pardons in our community.
About the film:
“Pardon Me” is a documentary short film that presents the case for how pardons not only give individuals the opportunity to live as full citizens and contribute to their best ability, but help uplift the lower-income communities in which they live. The film features two people going through the pardon process, one of whom did receive a pardon, and interviews with key civic leaders.
