The Foundation for Continuing Justice (FFCJ) is a privately funded, non-profit law firm dedicated to providing those with a criminal record, the opportunity to reenter and reintegrate into society as productive individuals.
Research has shown that obtaining employment is a primary factor in preventing recidivism amongst criminal offenders who are unemployed. However, criminal offenders that are trained, educated or licensed in a particular field must still overcome employment discrimination amongst the private and public sector employments. In addition, many state licensing rules limit employment opportunities and many private employers are conducting their own background checks and denying potential applicants for the existence of a criminal record or even arrest that did not result in a conviction.
The Foundation for Continuing Justice offers several projects dedicated to helping those who have had their criminal record sealed, expunged, set aside or otherwise cleared by the courts to reintegrate into society. All of the projects are provided free of cost to those who utilize them.
We have an amazing staff that handles all of our day-to-day operations and provides free information and tools to people who are seeking to minimize the negative consequences of a criminal record.
To study the long-term affects of a criminal record and to provide education and charitable assistance to former criminal offenders in their pursuit to reintegrate into society.
