Both Sunny and Peter were dragged onto death row where they spent a decade and a half awaiting execution before finally being exonerated. They have now set up the Sunny Centre Foundation where they provide support to those who have been wrongfully incarcerated. This talk will be an insightful experience, where you will hear about what they had to go through because of the flawed justice system.

More information on the Sunny Centre can be found here. The Sunny Center is a sanctuary, providing exonerees with immediate, spiritual, emotional and physical support, with the goal of assisting them with overcoming the trauma, isolation, and disconnection resulting from wrongful incarceration. Our guests will become part of our Family and learn to accept and give Love again in a safe environment with people who understand and have experienced what they are going through.

More information about Amicus can be found here. Amicus is a small charity that helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the United States. They believe the death penalty is disproportionately imposed on the most vulnerable in society, violating their right to due process and equal justice before the law. Their aims are to provide better access to justice and to raise awareness of potential abuses of defendants' rights. They are not a campaigning organisation. Amicus believe they can make the greatest difference through frontline work.
