Clinton Needs Your Help

 The Foundation got its name from former death-sentenced individual Clinton Young. His conviction was overturned on September 22, 2021.

On October 29, 2021 Clinton Young was officially taken off death row and transported to the Midland County Detention Center to await his new trial. Even though his conviction has been overturned, the capital murder charge still stands. Clinton therefore still faces a potential death sentence or life in prison.  Help us in the fight for justice, and help us in the fight for Clinton’s freedom.
