The Project

I will be an advocate for Louisiana’s juveniles serving life without parole by representing the innocent among them. I will secure representation for “over-convicted” juveniles; produce public education materials; and specialize in the social and legal issues that intersect with the issue of juvenile life without parole – especially as it relates to the wrongful and over-conviction of children. Through these activities, my fellowship will fuel the effort to abolish juvenile life without parole in Louisiana and the nation.
