Request for Presentations About Efrén Paredes, Jr. Injustice

To date we have made presentations at churches, colleges, community centers, organization meetings, schools, public libraries and homes. Anyone interested in having a member of The Injustice Must End (TIME) Committee do a presentation about Efrén's case can click here to send an e-mail request. You request will be forwarded to the appropriate member for follow up.

Please include the following information to better help us determine which TIME Committee member can be scheduled to do the presentation:

▸ Date and time you would like the presentation to be made;
▸ Location where presentation will be made (include street address, city, zip code);
▸ Size of location where presentation will be made (e.g., classroom, church, library, home, etc.);
▸ If you have a digital projector to show a PowerPoint presentation;
▸ If you have a microphone and sound system; and
▸ How many people you expect to attend the presentation.

The importance of these presentations can not be underscored enough. Through discussing Efrén's case, and casting light on the facts surrounding his wrongful conviction, we are not only creating much needed dialogue about Efrén's case, we are also:

▸ Discussing systemic problems that exist in the criminal justice system;
▸ Bringing attention to needed changes in the way juveniles are treated in adult courts and prisons;
▸ Educating people about the facts in Efrén's case, and correcting the lies and inaccurate information that have been circulated about Efren's case;
▸ Helping other families who are also going through similar experiences;
▸ Helping prevent this horrible experience from occurring to other families;
▸ Teaching others how to build a strong grassroots campaign to generate attention and support for a cause; and
▸ Helping the community heal by creating unity and developing real solutions to problems that plague the community.

Request Pre-Printed Postcards for Campaign

If you are interested in receiving printed postcards of support on card stock paper, you can click here to send an e-mail with your request. Please include your complete mailing address and how many postcards you are requesting.

Once you receive the postcards, you will need to cut them and then they are ready to be signed, stamped and mailed. If possible please send us copies of the postcards being mailed to the Governor's office. We realize this is not always possible. If you can give us a count of how many were mailed, that would be very appreciated. We use this information for Efrén's commutation request to show the support he continues to receive.

You do not have to be in the State of Michigan to request the postcards. Also, anyone can sign them, even if you sent a postcard previously. The current postage is 26 cents for a postcard. That rate will change to 27 cents on May 12th. (If anyone needs help with postage, please feel free to get in touch via e-mail and we will help.)
