Free Genarlow Wilson

Welcome, everyone, to our new blog.

This first post is dedicated to Genarlow Wilson, a young man who was sentenced to 10 years in a Georgia prison for no other crime than being a young black man.

Genarlow Wilson belongs in college, not in prison. He should be playing football, not serving time. Such blatant injustice cannot be ignored. Please join us in support of an upstanding young man whose life and future has been compromised simply because, one night, he was caught being a normal teenager.
