Many of you may have seen the TV coverage of the young black Detroiter Davontae Sanford who spent 10 years in prison for a crime he never committed. In June Davontae was set free and able to return to his family (having been in solitary confinement since 2007.)
Last week Davontae joined us at the Meldrum Kitchen to thank so many of the folks who supported him.
His Father Jermaine is a regular volunteer at the Soup Kitchen and so many of our guests and employees had prayed for him and taken part in an internet blitz to force action from the Wayne County Prosecutors office.
In a clear case of injustice, the 14 year old was railroaded into a ‘cover-up’ confession and the assassin who killed the four Drug dealers confessed to the deed only months after Davontae was sentenced.
We thank so many of you for your prayers and support. Once again, we are privileged to work together not only for the feeding of minds and bodies, but for justice and the stance against systems of brokenness.
