Exonerees Share Their Favorite Family Photos for Father’s Day

Fernando Bermudez

“My children are my world, my rock, my sacrifice and joy! They inspired me to fight while incarcerated when I felt hopeless and near death. Today, they inspire my social justice work to protect not only their future but also a future for my two grandsons and others. #ILovemybabies.”

Bermudez was exonerated of murder in 2009 after 22 years in prison. Follow him on Twitter @FernandoBermud6 and Facebook to keep up with him as a public speaker.
