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.
