OUR WORK IN ACTION
Eddie lived in prison for 36 years with no hope of release until the Montgomery v. Louisiana US Supreme Court decision in January 2016. While in prison, he earned his GED, an Associate’s Degree in Religious Education, and became a minister and facilitator to the men serving alongside him.
For John,* a youth client-partner of YSRP, violence and tragedy permeated his childhood. YSRP worked with John to move his case from adult court to the juvenile justice system. Now home, John is working hard toward his bright future: toward becoming a college graduate, and a social worker.
