Seattle Clemency Project’s mission is to increase access to justice for reformed individuals serving sentences that no longer serve a purpose and to prevent deportations that fracture our communities.
We do this by matching our clients with free, high-quality, legal representation, afterward providing holistic reentry and transition support to promote their long term success.
We firmly believe in the power of redemption and that a healthy justice system must recognize and reward rehabilitation. We work with individuals who, despite having been sent a message by the criminal legal system that they were not capable of reform, have grown, matured, and healed. We believe all individuals have the capacity to change and that individuals who are serving sentences that no longer serve a valid purpose deserve a voice and a second chance.
