Join us as we honor Elizabeth Calvin, Nate Williams, and Nane Alejandrez three people working tirelessly to bring both hope and healing to individuals and families devastated by harsh, misguided criminal justice policies. Elizabeth has authored and championed the most significant legislation in decades guaranteeing thousands of young people a meaningful opportunity to come home from adult prison. Nate, a former UnCommon Law client, works as a mentor and regularly returns to prison to inspire others still locked inside. And Nane has spent four decades advocating for justice on behalf of incarcerated young people.

We also get to welcome home 21 more of our clients, who were released this year from their life sentences!
