Rejoicing as Ben Spencer is almost free

TOP members are excited about the news this past week of Ben Spencer being closer to getting back his freedom. Ben is the son of longtime TOP member Lucille Spencer who for over 30 years has fought to get justice after his wrongful conviction.

Over the last six months, members have ramped up pressure with petitions, rallies, phone-a-thons, and a letter-writing campaign to make sure Ben gets his shot at freedom.

This progress would not be possible if it were not for the grassroots organizing of our members, ongoing support from community allies, Ben’s legal team, and the Dallas County District Attorney’s office supporting that the conviction be vacated.

TOP will continue to follow Ben’s journey and advocate for his full freedom so he can finally hug his mother Lucille after all these years. Stay tuned!

For more information on our Right2Justice campaign work in support of Ben, call or text Carvell Bowens at (214) 934-8558.
