Success Story: Elizabeth Melson

Elizabeth at HeritageLet’s face it: every once in a while, you just need to hear a story with a happy ending. The U.S. criminal justice system has some devastating effects, and here at FAMM, every day we hear from people in prison and their families about how the criminal justice system is failing them. We share these stories to reform unjust sentences, and we’re grateful to have them to share.

But earlier this year, we decided that we needed to share some good news, too. In order to advocate for change, it’s necessary to demonstrate what that change could ultimately look like. So we expanded our profiles to include success stories – stories of people who get a second chance at life and make the most of it.

We better all get on board.  It is time we give the nations offenders a second chance.  Period, Case-Closed!
