We currently have a custom Wordpress template that is very difficult to customize and navigate. Most importantly, we have no idea how to edit the homepage, and Google Analytics reports that we have a 75% bounce rate off the homepage. The services and information we provide can be difficult to digest for potential funders and clients, and we want to make the website a useful resource.
Founded in 2010, PLSE seeks a more equitable social environment for those with criminal records through individual representation, strategic litigation, community education, research, and legislative advocacy. PLSE provides free legal representation to lower income people whose criminal records are holding them back from achieving their potential as productive citizens by seeking expungements in criminal court, pardons from the Governor, educating elected and community leaders, and empowering under-resourced communities to seek a greater voice and needed legislative reforms.
We are deeply engaged in the areas of criminal history records and the damage they cause, obtaining expungements (erasure) of non-conviction data through representation in court, and redefining pardons as both an attack on inter-generational poverty and a no-cost economic development initiative in low-income/high-arrest neighborhoods.
