@60Minutes @andersoncooper Thank you for bringing this profound organization, to the masses. Alexander McLean and #JusticeDefenders are accelerating hope, justice and self-worth; to many of the forgotten. A reminder that wonderful things are possible, when we come together.
“We make assumptions as people, as a society. And we dig our graves through those assumptions. Law is not for lawyers... Law is not for... the rich. Law is for everyone,” says Morris Kaberia, who successfully appealed his own death sentence in Kenya.
Justice Defenders says it’s helped more than 18,000 people in Kenya get a fair hearing in the last 3 years. “Those who are guilty of offenses should be punished… But those who are innocent shouldn't be wrongly punished,” says the organization’s founder.
If you watch @60Minutes tonight, you'll get to know George. He taught fellow prisoners to learn to read while he was on death row. Then he studied law, helping prepare the argument that convinced the Supreme Court of Kenya to overturn the mandatory death sentence.
Sunday on @60Minutes meet the #JusticeDefenders @justicedefends. In 46 prisons in #Kenya and #Uganda, they’re training 100’s of inmates to be paralegals and even get law degrees so they can help others get fair hearings. The results have been astounding!
