Gaps in the criminal system place wrongfully convicted men and women in desperate situations after release. Many exonerees are crippled with mental and physical issues and often homeless. In fact, exonerees aren’t even afforded the same re-entry services that parolees receive. Despite being innocent, these men and women are typically given nothing more than a pair of clothes and a bus pass when they’re released back onto the streets. That’s where Life After Justice works to right this wrong. We advocate for the rights of the wrongfully convicted by seeking health care, housing, job training, computer skills, finance classes, mentoring, and more.
The Life After Justice Center was founded by Antoine Day and Jarrett Adams. Antoine and Jarrett have a special interest in starting The Life After Justice Center, because they’re both exonerees themselves. Both men suffered grave injustices by the criminal justice system and spent years of their lives in prison for crimes they didn’t commit. Now they want to help others that have suffered through similar experiences.
Our goal is to start a re-entry home for “exonerees” released from prison.
Your donation will help provide these men with a place to live and a variety of services the men need to successfully re-enter society, such as: job training, computer skills, finance classes, mentoring, and more.
