The Pardons Project, a restorative justice project of Delaware Pacem in Terris in collaboration with the Delaware Center for Justice, works to eradicate civil barriers to reintegration of ex-prisoners into society by empowering and preparing them to represent themselves before the Board of Pardons.

Members of the Pardons Project team give moral support to the pardon-seekers at monthly support meetings and also accompany them to the hearings before the Board of Pardons. Widener Law School is providing volunteer law students to aid the team of staff, volunteers and a participating volunteer attorney who gives legal advice. A handbook put together by the Pardons Project called “Civic Redemption” is used as a guide. Many of those who have been helped to gain a pardon speak of feeling personally transformed by the hope and process of getting a societal stamp of approval, and return to the monthly meetings to encourage others.

There are regular monthly support meetings held on certain Mondays. For more information, call (302) 984-2660 or (302) 656-2721.

The meeting will take place in Classroom 5.
