Help Lamar Johnson After Wrongful Conviction

In 1995, Lamar Johnson was wrongfully convicted of murder in St. Louis, Missouri. He has been fighting for his freedom for more than 28 years. That fight ended on February 14, 2023 when Judge David Mason vacated Lamar's conviction and ordered his immediate release.

Your support will help Lamar re-enter society with some financial resources. While he worked inside prison for more than two decades, he was paid only cents per hour. He has no savings and will not receive compensation from the State for his years of wrongful imprisonment. Lamar's legal team worked pro bono and 100% of funds raised will go to him to help him rebuild his life.

He needs our help. Please consider donating if you are able. Thank you for supporting Lamar during his journey.
