17 Years, 8 Months, & 1 Day on death row …

Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 7:30pm at Sixth Presbyterian Church (1688 Murray Ave) to hear Juan Melendez tell his moving story of injustice, hope, and survival!

Juan Roberto Melendez spent seven-teen years, eight months, and one day on Florida’s death row for a crime he did not commit. Upon his release on January 3, 2002, he became the 99th death row prisoner in the United States to be released with evidence of innocence since 1973. Beyond the death penalty, Mr. Melendez’s story is an energizing and inspiring story of hope and survival that resonates with people all across the political and socio-economic spectrum, inspiring many to activism and public service.
