The transition to life outside of prison has been described by some of our clients as almost as hard as being wrongly incarcerated. Like all of us, in the past few weeks our freed clients have had their lives turned upside down: some have lost their jobs and some have struggled with the all-too-familiar feeling of being isolated from their loved ones and communities, as they were in prison.
Human connection is so important as we all physically and socially distance ourselves to keep ourselves and our communities safe.
Can you write a quick note of comfort, ask your kids to draw something hopeful, or send some encouragement to our clients?
Simply mail to us at:
Innocence Project New Orleans
P.O. Box 792808
New Orleans, LA 70179-2808
After a 72-hour quarantine for your words of hope, we’ll pass them on to a client who needs a boost.
Thank you, stay well, and stay connected.
