The ELLA Foundation™ is headed to MS to contact, organize, and train families of those affected by Mississippi’s criminal justice system to advocate for their loved ones and effect viable change under the guise of the first chapter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty.
We will also be opening the first ELLA’s Place, a community violence prevention and healing center which will offer support and education to those affected by violence and the criminal justice system, no matter which side of the crime scene tape our clients must cross to find us to begin to heal.
ELLA’s Place™ will be staffed by paid and volunteer social workers, lawyers, teachers, psychologists, and advocates who understand, and can deliver, the four things everyone affected by violence needs to stop, cope with, and overcome the violence of their life: Empathy. Love. Lessons. Action.
The ELLA Foundation has created Voices of Mississippi, a closed group on Facebook for those interested in reforming the criminal justice system of Mississippi. ELLA created this group, which is closed and visible only to approved members, to be a forum where all those who support human rights, criminal justice reform, and anti-death penalty efforts in Mississippi can share your needs and concerns and find strength and support in numbers. You are not alone Mississippi. You’ve just been ignored. It’s time for that to stop.
Much love and stay tuned for updates on ELLA’s grassroots coalition building efforts in MS!
Anyone can add someone, but the addition will have to be approved by the admin.
The group is completely closed, private, and posts are not visible to the general FB audience, only to members.
Anyone can post but keep it specific to Mississippi related posts on the death penalty, criminal justice reform, and/or victim advocacy.
And keep it civil! No hateful, angry, insulting speech will be tolerated. Get angry, act loving.
