John Brown Memorial Fund

On the evening of Thursday, Nov. 26, 2020, an electrical fire broke out in John Brown’s apartment. John is an MIP client, who was released in 2018. We are so thankful that John suffered no injuries. Though he was able to get out in time, most of his belongings were destroyed and he needs help.

Donations will be going directly to John to get him back on his feet. Many exonerees and freed innocent people are already among the most financially precarious demographic, and John’s health conditions have impacted his life and finances even further. Any financial assistance provided will be so gratefully appreciated.
