Juan Melendez in Santa CruzAdded to the calendar on Saturday Oct 27th, 2012 11:30 PM
Juan Melendez spent nearly 18 years on Florida's death row for a crime he did NOT commit. In January 2002, he became the 99th death row inmate to be exonerated and released since 1973. His case highlights persistent pervasive problems in our death penalty system. Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear Juan's inspirational story of human resilience, courage, faith and forgiveness.
”Juan is a living testament to the injustice of capital punishment and his talk is more effective than anything I could teach my students.” – Law Professor, Thomas Jefferson Law School.
