John Thompson

2007 Fellow
Founder of Resurrection After Exoneration

John Thompson 2007 Fellow

Bold Idea 

Build a transitional home run by exonerated men for exonerated men that provides the medical, financial, legal, and educational aid necessary to help them break the cycle of dependence and poverty.

Experience 

John Thompson spent eighteen years on Louisiana’s Death Row for a crime he did not commit. He walked out of prison with ten dollars and a bus fare, and he vowed to never go back. His intimate familiarity with what people experience behind prison walls as well as the great obstacles they must overcome after being released led him to launch Resurrection After Exoneration.
