John Brookins is a son, a brother, an uncle, a husband, and a grandfather. To many, he is a leader, a teacher, and a friend. He is a yoga instructor and runs fitness and meditation programs for his colleagues, and to know John is to know a loving, deeply spiritual, and inspiring man.

John has also been in prison for twenty-eight years for a crime he did not commit.

On December 20th 1990, John witnessed the aftermath of the murder of his friend, Sheila Ginsberg. Eighteen months later, he was convicted of the crime, and he remains in prison to this day.

John’s is a story of cover-ups, coercion, and mistakes. It might seem too much to believe, but it’s all true. Since the crime, John has consistently denied being the perpetrator, even passing a lie detector test in 1991 to that effect.

John’s family is waiting for him on the outside. The time for action is now. Please show your support for John’s cause below.
