“Help a wrongful convicted man reenter society”

“Being in prison wasn’t a choice for Leon”

 My name is Valerie Buford and I am the sister of Leon Benson. My brother is on the brink of being exonerated from prison after serving 24 years on a false (wrongful) conviction.

 Our family originated out of Birmingham, AL. Leon will be released his plans is to stay in Detroit, where I now reside. I’m reaching out as an ambassador for my brother Leon. I know he has a lot to offer the world as a leader, motivational speaker, artist, and etc.

 Leon needs support from the people. I’m creating this platform to give the world an opportunity to help Leon. I don’t think it’s fair for him to have a burden on basic necessities upon his release after serving all that time for a crime he did not commit. My hopes and prayers is that his burden will be lighter upon his fresh new journey with your act of kindness.

 I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all, with love, Valerie Buford and The Benson’s Team.

 Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'”
