My Choice My Voice
This summer RAE started a new summer program for at-risk youth called MY CHOICE MY VOICE. MCMV provides meaningful education to young black men, using guided discussion, writing, and media to empower them to share their voices, as well as to provide them with work and life skills. Approximately half our youth are somehow involved in the criminal justice system and the program welcomes both students and drop-outs.
Students participate in classes in writing, computer skills, social concerns, AV/media, graphic design, screen printing, and community gardening, as well as go on field trips and hear guest speakers. We have been blessed this summer to be joined by Queen Black Kold Madina, the No Aids Task Force, the Innocence Project, Judges Kern Reese and Laurie White, and many others who have donated their time to speak to our participants and help make our program a success.
Help us get RAE Community Bus on the road!
All donations for our school bus gratefully accepted - we need new tyres, paint job, AC and seat coverings. This bus will be used during our Summer program, trips to Angola and for community events!

WHAT HAPPENS TO INNOCENCE AFTER INCARCERATION?
Each year, we hear about more innocent people being released from prison in the United States.
Today, there are over 400 exonerated men and women who have been wrongly convicted and victimized by our criminal justice system.
On average, each has served more than 10 years in prison before being released.
Resurrection After Exoneration (RAE) was founded in 2007 by exonerees to promote and sustain a network of support among formerly wrongfully incarcerated individuals in the South. RAE works to reconnect exonerees to their communities and provide access to those opportunities of which they were robbed.
RAE is an offspring of the non-profit law office, Innocence Project New Orleans (IPNO) .
