Review for Equal Justice Initiative Of Alabama Inc, Montgomery, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an exemplary organization because it is devoted to helping juveniles who are serving very long sentences behind bars~sometimes Life Without Parole, which means that if a young person is convicted of a serious crime, he or she could remain incarcerated for the rest of their natural lives. Bryan Stevenson appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court in March of 2012 hoping to convince the court to overturn mandatory life sentences for juveniles involved in a crime where someone was killed. The court ruled 5-4 that Life Without Parole for this type of crime was unconstitutional. Mr. Stevenson is the executive director of Equal Justice Initiative and the organization reaches out to the poor and to those on death row as well,helping people obtain justice when they cannot do so alone. I have just begun to contribute financially to this organization as I believe our young people need an advocate like Bryan Stevenson.

Review for Innocence Project Of Florida Inc, Tallahassee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is one which exonerates men and women who are wrongfully incarcerated. Many of their exonerees have spent 20 or 30 years or more behind bars for a crime they never committed. It is very important that the public know that our justice system makes horrendous mistakes and that The Innocence Project of Florida attempts to right the wrongs done to innocent individuals who have been accused, arrested and imprisoned. We are volunteers and donors with this fine organization. We have been honored to meet several exonerees. They have a great website and they would be grateful for any donation you are able to give. Harriet and Stan Hendel
