We Need Your Help
The Foundation got its name from former death-sentenced individual Clinton Young. Clinton’s conviction was overturned on September 22, 2021.
In October 2021, Clinton Young was officially taken off death row and transported to the Midland County Jail to await his new trial. On January 20, 2022, Clinton was released from the jail on bond thanks to donations raised by Foundation. Clinton is the first person in Texas whose death sentence got overturned and subsequently got released on bond. Even though Clinton can now await his new trial at home, the fight isn’t over with yet. Help us in the fight for justice, and help us in the fight for Clinton’s ultimate freedom.
