Stand with Donovan on September 18

A message from Donovan DraytonAs you know, on July 25, Donovan was cleared of all but one lesser charge (gun possession).
read our statement on the verdicts here

This coming Wednesday, September 18, we gather together to learn the judge’s decision regarding sentencing on this charge.

We anticipate that the judge will consider the time Donovan has already spent in prison and factor in Donovan’s good character, vast community support & the involuntary circumstances that led to the gun being in his hands. We do not expect him to spend any more time behind bars, but we must remain vigilant and it’s vital that we fill the room to show our support for Donovan and his family.

Please join us!
The hearing is set to begin at 9:00 and we ask that you arrive by 8:45 to ensure that you will have a seat in the room. This should be a short day.

This will take place in the same building as the trial, but in a different room.
