On this day in 2013, Uriah Courtney was freed after serving eight years in prison for a crime committed by another man. DNA exonerated him on May 6, 2013, more than a month before he was released. "I received a letter in 2009 [saying that] the California Innocence Project was actively going to work on my case. Getting that letter sparked my hope," Uriah said. Help us wish him a happy six years of freedom!
This past Thursday, we experienced and bore witness to the intentional and systemic torture that the United States government inflicts on women, children and people who are simply fleeing violence & seeking protection. Saw the complete disregard for the most basic of human rights for hundreds, no thousands, of people who have done absolutely nothing but seek a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Seeking asylum has never, and must never, be a crime. Never. Period.
We produced a performance by @vicmensa in front of Otay Mesa Immigrant Prison. We utilized art as a weapon to expose the complete disregard of humanity and the loss of life that US foreign and national policy has on communities in America and across the world. In front of one of the largest prisons on the planet, we said no more. Ya Basta. We will not stop until America stops caging our family members. We. Will. Never. Stop.
So inspired by the absolutely life saving work of @alotrolado_org@haitianbridge@potcsd@panasandiego - thank you so very much for being on the front lines of working nonstop to stop these unspeakable human rights atrocities from happening. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
So let’s continue fighting for #schoolsnotprisons Let’s celebrate the resiliency of our shared humanity. Let’s affirm and work to uphold #worldrefugeeday And let’s fight like hell to #abolishice & #closeimmigrantprisons@mrmikedelarocha

“Crimes and Punishments: Entering the Mind of a Sentencing Judge” provides a cross-section of different crimes for which Judge Frederic Block sentenced a convicted criminal. The book shows what sentencing is all about, and how at least one federal judge deals with this powerful aspect of his judicial responsibilities. Link in the bio.

When They See Us (2019)
Synopsis🍿: In 1989 a jogger was assaulted and raped in New York's Central Park, and five young people were subsequently charged with the crime.
Showrunner 🎬: Ava DuVernay
# of episodes⌛: 5
Cast🌟: Jharrel Jerome, Freddy Miyares, Caleel Harris ----------------------------------------------------------------------
My Review 📽️:
When They See Us is an intriguing story that grabs the audience's attention from the get go.
The show is split up into two different stories using the same characters. In the final two episodes they show the aftermath of the trial that was shown in the first two. Showing the emotional impact that it had on the characters continued the recurring theme the show has.
The way the show gets to the time jump was sloppy. By the time the audience adjusted most of the narrative storytelling up to that point is lost.
The fourth and final episode might be the best. It takes the audience through the journey of one of the characters which seemed like they contradicted the time jump from the previous episode.
Overall, When They See Us is a heart breaking show that I would definitely recommend.
Happy Monday everyone! Who’s ready for a new week? 🙋🏽♀️

“Innocent until proven guilty”.... unless you can’t afford it.
According to the 14th Amendment we are all presumed innocent until proven otherwise. So why is the US caging poor people before they’ve had their day in court? ⚖️💸

Today in the @exch4change spotlight series: Florida once again is rated first in the nation for higher education, according to U.S. News and World Report rankings. The rankings are based on the percentage of residents who have college degrees, the time it takes students to complete two- and four-year programs at public institutions, the cost of in-state tuition and fees and the average debt for the graduating class of 2017.
