“Ever since I started working in the wrongful conviction space, Jason Flom was someone I admired,” said Freleng. “Lava for Good doesn’t just tell stories; it changes lives. As a journalist who has spent years shining the light on issues such as mental illness and criminal justice, I understand the power of affecting change not only through reporting, but also human connections. It’s truly a dream of mine to partner with Lava for Good and use our cumulative resources to change our communities for the better.”

“When you are wrongfully convicted and locked up in a cage, justice can’t wait,” said Flom. “Our mission is to bring these powerful human stories to the forefront of our public consciousness, to help right these wrongs and to help prevent them from happening with the same numbing regularity in the future. Maggie Freleng is a master at her craft, an expert in the field of criminal justice and a fierce advocate for countless wrongfully convicted men and women. We are extremely proud to have her join us to host this series.”
