This is LaWanda with Justice For Murdered Children. I’m also, one of the Proponents of the Marsy’s Law and I need your help in getting the Marsy’s Law Passed in November.
As you know, my only son, Reginald was murdered in San Pedro. Since his murder, I have worked tirelessly for the rights of murder victims, so that other parents might not have to suffer the loss, and the continued victimization of our loved ones at the hands of the judicial system.
Murders need to stop and the punishment has to fit the crime for people to understand that murder and violent criminal acts are not acceptable. In our fight to continue to move forward instead of backwards, in a time when California’s budget crisis seems to be single handedly dismantling many of the safeguards for its citizens that we have come to expect from the last 20 years of victim’s families fighting for justice, we have a major initiative that we need to marshal ourselves around – “Marsy’s Law” – which will be on the November ballot for California.
Marsy’s Law will ensure that all victims are treated with justice and due processes. Crime victims in California must know the justice system works for them and that they will be treated fairly and that if not, they have due recourse within the system. Marsy’s Law gives victims enforceable rights in our criminal justice system and our state constitution. It balances the scale of justice for victims.
Currently, I am working on the fund raising campaign for Marsy’s Law and would like to ask you for any ideas you might have on potential events. I would like for you to potentially host an event at your residence or ask if you can suggest any other fund raising activities that you could sponsor or assist with.
Please email back to [email protected] and your information will be forwarded to Lawanda.
