Free and Still Fighting

Lorenzo’s had a busy few weeks since his release on July 11. He has returned to his hometown of Yonkers, NY, rejoined his family, and started working at his old job again. He has also taken to the streets to fight for the wrongfully convicted!

On Wednesday, August 2, Lorenzo took part in a rally supporting wrongfully convicted prisoner Jon Velazquez.
