UnCommon Law is a California non-profit organization whose mission is to help long-term prisoners obtain release. We work with prisoners for months or years in advance of their parole board hearings, and we represent them in those hearings and in court petitions challenging the parole board and the governor.
As 2014 comes to a close, we really want to thank you for supporting our successful efforts to bring 32 more prisoners home from their life sentences this year. This makes a total of more than 100 released clients since we started UnCommon Law. Many of you were able to join us for our First Annual Coming Home Celebration in November, and you had a chance to meet some of the extraordinary clients with whom we have been fortunate to work.
Even if you missed the Coming Home event, you can still see video clips of former clients Richard Poma, David Basile and Nate Williams discussing how UnCommon Law helped them translate their stories of personal transformation into a language the parole board could understand.
We are very proud of the fact that our 100+ released clients are saving the state roughly $6 Million every year while contributing immeasurably to their families and communities after decades in prison. You can help us by clicking here to make a tax-deductible contribution.
