French associations SAVE and Lutte Pour la Justice (LPJ)
have launched a new Emergency Fund
to provide support to the legal defense on death row in the USA.
We would like to ask you to help us in this difficult work by making whatever small donation you can -- any donation of 20 euros or more, could make you become a member of our associations at your request and get updates.
Our goal is to be able to contribute to the legal defense of the prisoner whose need can become extremely urgent, for example when there is an upcoming deadline to file an appeal or an execution date. Examples are numerous and may include needs for investigations, expertises, DNA tests and other such.
Who are we?
SAVE is a small structure which has existed for nearly three years and is monitoring a list of over 100 innocence claims (sometimes involved in the cases), some of whom have already benefited from exonerations, executions stays, clemency, new hearings, etc.
In the last 3 years, over 15% of the prisoners we are monitoring have been either granted with a new hearing, given clemency, granted an execution stay, or have been exonerated.
LPJ is a French association founded in 1999, which has around 200 active members, and/or supporters. It is an association recognised of public interest in France (tax deductible donations). LPJ has been supporting morally and financially a number of prisoners on death row or juveniles with a life sentence. Some of them have had their death sentence commuted to life or have benefited from a new trial, a small number have been exonerated.
Together SAVE and LPJ work in complementary ways, along the common goal of trying to bring justice.
We hope that you will be helping us in this ambitious breakthrough project, that could help save lives. Please contact SAVE or LPJ to find out more
