Everyone deserves a fair trial
The Clinton Young Foundation advocates for and offers legal assistance to those wrongfully convicted of capital murder in Texas. Clinton Young, whose case is an iconic example of massive injustice, is someone we have been advocating for since the start.
The Clinton Young Foundation helps people who are wrongfully convicted of capital murder in Texas by offering legal representation and advocacy work. We primarely offer our services in the post-conviction phase. We never let clients pay for our services.
The Foundation got its name from former death-sentenced individual Clinton Young. With our help, Clinton was able to get out on bond in January 2022 after his conviction and death sentence were overturned in September of 2021. Clinton is the first person whose death sentence was overturned to make it out on bond while awaiting a new trial.
