I'm from Chicago, Illinois and growing up in a church oriented environment taught me early on to appreciate the value of human life. These lessons I have carried with me all my life. As a young teenager anytime I saw a homeless person I was compelled to help them. Sometimes, I would offer to buy them dinner so we could talk and I could begin understand what they were going through.
In college I first got into organizing by working with the ACLU. Now, I am a member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference the organization that was started by Dr. Martin Luther King. After reading a story about Emmanuel Rohm the person who dismantled the Egyptian government using facebook, I decided to use causes to start a campaign for George Stinney Jr.
The Stinney Case is a classic American tragedy - We must send a clear direct message to the nation that we’re not going to sit back and let innocent children be killed and not say anything about it. So, the people involved who will come out to support this cause: are white, black, brown, and they are tired of the growing senseless community violence we see everyday.
God-given Human Rights, must be at the forefront of our national and international agenda.
If you would like to learn more about George Stinney Jr, and take part in the campaign, please join me - www.causes.com/exonerate-george-stinney-jr.
