--- UnCommon Law's Story ---
Through healing-centered counseling and legal assistance, UnCommon Law helps California prisoners gain their freedom and return home.
Our clients can only be released from prison if they have transformed their lives. Unfortunately, they have very little help accomplishing this.
That's where we come in! And we need your help to raise $50,000 to do it!
We work with them to understand how their histories of abuse, fear, abandonment or other negative experiences contributed to their own harmful decisions. This is a long, difficult, emotional process. Most of our clients have been in prison for decades without any guidance or support in doing this critical introspective work.
We give people the support and hope they need to transform their lives.
There is an urgent need to expand our work. Every year, roughly 5,000 incarcerated Californians go to the parole board - but the majority will have only a single brief visit with a state-appointed attorney before their hearings, and they are successful barely 20% of the time. UnCommon Law spends months or years counseling our clients before their hearings, and we are successful more than 60% of the time. Our released clients are saving the state more than $12 million every single year!
We're working to build a bridge that will provide access to our unique model of therapeutic legal counseling for all 5,000 people applying for parole each year in California.
That's where you come in! Your contribution will help UnCommon Law give more people a real chance to regain their freedom and come home. Thank you for partnering with us to transform justice, one life at a time.
