A Transformational Conversations with the Michael Thompson Project

May 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sunday, May 21.   Injustices in our flawed judicial system cause grievous harm. Hear what we can do about it this Sunday when Conversations Host Chuck Newman interviews Michael Thompson and other representatives from the Michael Thompson Project.

You may not have heard the name ‘Michael Thompson’, but he became a part of Michigan state history and an ongoing national conversation in 1994 when he received a sentence of 42-60 years for selling three pounds of cannabis to his friend turned police informant. He remained there until 2021, when he was granted clemency by Governor Gretchen Whitmer. A recent presentation at the University of Michigan Law School shocked attendees when they heard how our flawed judicial system has ruined so many lives by keeping people in prison long after there is any justification for doing so.

Chuck will interview guests about how to seek clemency for the unjustly imprisoned and changes to the parole and sentencing process. In addition to Michael Thompson, we will also hear from Nancy Seaman. She was unjustly imprisoned for killing her abusive husband in self defense and will likely never be released from prison unless we help her obtain justice.

Register here and you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. The interview will be on Zoom live at 7:30 p.m. ET.
