Beach Walk 768 – Justice with Jeff Deskovic

We met Jeff back in 2008 and you will be amazed at what all he has accomplished! Wrongfully imprisoned for 17 years starting at age 16, he is launching a foundation with his settlement money to help others who have been falsely accused and convicted.

Jeff won me over the first time we met and we have kept in touch over the years. On March 16th, he is hosting a breakfast in New York and launching The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice. I hope you will join me in learning more about what he does and has done, and support this powerful and empowering work. I have made a donation and hope you will also.

As you long time fans understand, Beach Walks is about more than fun on the beach. It is also about understanding the richness of life and embracing change and transformation even when presented with some of life’s most staggering challenges.

Beach Walk 626 – The Innocence of Jeffrey Deskovic

Imagine you were arrested at age 16 for a rape and murder you did not commit.

You were held and questioned without parents or a lawyer. You were eventually convicted (despite contradictory DNA evidence), and served 17 years in jail. Wrongful incarceration for nearly two decades.

The result is Jeffrey Deskovic, and I am amazed at the grace and light that is he. A few months ago I read the amazing true story of Jeffrey Deskovic. He is still a young man who has been through some amazing trials already, and yet has come through them with grace and strength. I invited him to the Podcamp NYC conference to meet other new media creators for interviews, and to learn how to use this technology to further his own message. Our episode barely scratched the surface – I hope you will check out these other links.
