YSRP Celebrates 4th Anniversary of Montgomery Decision

January 2020: Partygoers, including former Juvenile Lifers, YSRP staff, and partners, celebrate the 4th anniversary of the Montgomery v. Louisiana decision in Philadelphia.

On the 4th anniversary of the landmark Montgomery v. Louisiana US Supreme Court decision, former Juvenile Lifers and their loved ones gathered with YSRP staff and our partners in the field to celebrate freedom. John Pace, YSRP’s JLWOP Reentry Coordinator, emceed a program that honored and celebrated the community, beginning with a remembrance of Shavonne Robbins, followed by remarks from Chad Dion Lassiter and, finally, with Saleem Holbrook, recognition of “unsung heroes” in the Juvenile Lifer community. We are grateful to our hosts, The HIVE at Spring Point, for generously providing a beautiful space for our community to gather. Click on any photograph to view the full gallery.
