Fighting for justice
Our foundation was officially established by Renate Bouwmeester in the Netherlands in 2014 in order to create awareness for Clinton Young’s death penalty case. Our legal director Merel Pontier joined her in 2017.
In 2020, the foundation was officially established by Merel Pontier in Texas, USA. Over the years, the foundation has grown into an international team of dedicated and passionate volunteers with diverse backgrounds, expertise, and experiences.
What Drives Us
The foundation’s mission is to make sure that people who are wrongfully convicted, such as Clinton Young and other clients of the foundation, receive a fair trial. In order to accomplish that, we create awareness for wrongful convictions, we raise money which will be used for legal expenses, and we educate the public about injustices in the American criminal justice system.
