Unbreakable Resolve: Building Free-Dem Foundations in New Orleans
Jerome Morgan, Robert Jones, and Daniel Rideau will lead a powerful discussion about the prison system and incarceration. All three served nearly fifty years in prison unjustly before being found innocent. They were all wrongly convicted and served a total of more than fifty years in Angola Prison before being found innocent. While in prison, they made a pact to someday reunite and go into business together as free men. They enrolled in prison education programs, learned trades, and studied law. They stuck together and worked with allies outside the prison. Today, through their work with Free-Dem Foundations, a non-profit community-based youth organization in New Orleans, they are realizing the vision they created while unjustly incarcerated.
