“I preach to my kids, ‘Just tell the truth. Be true to who you are,’” Antron McCray, proud father of six, told CBS News last month. “Honestly, the last time I lied, got me 7.5 years for something I didn’t do.”
All year round, we’re inspired by the courage and resilience of dads who were wrongfully convicted. Will you help us honor them by sending an uplifting Father’s Day message today?
For exonerated dads like Antron and his fellow exonerees Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson and Raymond Santana, Father’s Day is a reminder to celebrate the strength they show for themselves and their families, even if it’s also a bittersweet reminder of the years lost.
And for those wrongfully convicted fathers still fighting for freedom, it’s a day to honor their struggle and resilience. This Father’s Day, help us remind wrongfully convicted dads that we’re standing with them and fighting for the day they’ll be reunited with their families too.
Send a Father’s Day message to courageous dads who endured wrongful conviction. It will make their day.
