Golfing in El Paso

On Friday, August 28th Proclaim Justice (PJ) held its first annual golf tournament fundraiser at Painted Dunes in El Paso. We are grateful to the 80+ players as well as our wonderful team of volunteers. A special thanks to PJ board member John Mimbela as well as his team at Mimbela Contractors who worked incredibly hard to make the event a resounding success. On hand were PJ co-founders John Hardin and Jason Baldwin, PJ advisory board member and exoneree Chris Ochoa, and Daniel Villegas. Daniel continues to be our main focus in El Paso. While he remains out of prison after serving over 20 years for a crime he did not commit, he isn’t truly free as DA Jaime Esparza shamefully plans on retrying him next year. His case was recently featured on Dateline NBC. Click here to watch the full episode of The Confession. 

We’re already looking forward to next year’s tournament. Some pictures are below, but you can view more here. Also, John, Jason, and Chris sat down for an interview with KFOX14.
