From the desk of John Wells

          When I joined Extend a Hand For Justice in July 2014 as a volunteer, I did so because I was anxious to join an organization that wasn’t afraid to stand up and speak out against corruption and abuse of persons of authority.  It wasn’t long before I realized that Extend a Hand For Justice was not just an ordinary advocacy organization with an ax to grind or a arrogant vengeance to project.  I didn’t know Gladys Monji, Jesse Boyar Sr. or Ernestine Harper, 3 of the original founders, as they had previously passed away.  I did get to know Jerome Valenta, the fourth founder, Lena Williams, Yolanda Ruiz, and many of the dedicated volunteers who had a quest to seek justice for anyone violated.   I was astonished with the vast volume of the thousands of documentation, and the hundreds of cases that existed in their advocacy operations, and couldn’t believe the dedication of such a small group of missionaries who unselfishly worked to seek justice for all those abused. Letters of complaints, the assistance in Writs of Habeas Corpus and Appellate Briefs, protests, marches, letters to the Editor, were abundant.  Yet, it wasn’t just those actions that amazed me.  It was the personal involvement in helping those released from incarceration to find housing, jobs, reconnection with their families, and the struggles of everyday life.  The support of mothers, wives, and children of those incarcerated who were undergoing trauma in their lives.

          I was amazed to find that none of them ever sought publicity or personal recognition to feed their egos, but with enthusiasm, commitment, and perseverance, they worked in a low keyed environment with only one goal in mind, to seek correction of wrongdoing.  They didn’t even have a Web Page or ever advertised their accomplishments. None of them were leaders, but worked together as a team like ants.

          I found that the original 4 founders, Gladys, Jesse, Jerome, and Ernestine all had past experiences of wrongful accusations, judicial injustice, or were victims of abuse of those in authority.  Their main goal was to assist those who were experiencing like acts in an effort to help them abate what had happened to them in their own lives.  Never had I experienced such dedication to do God’s will.  Their programs of feeding the poor, nursing the sick, and having compassion for the lowly was paralleled to the teachings of Jesus Christ.  They never took no for an answer when justice was at risk, and they never sough compensation for their acts.

          I found myself in admiration for their efforts and was proud to be a new part of their endeavors, and I, like them, decided I was going to dedicate my life as well to stand up and speak out as loud as I can to continue in their footstep.

          This is a story that needs to be told.  So, I decided that a proper Web Page for Extend a Hand For Justice must be presented to not only document what these servants had accomplished, but to preserve in history their countless accomplishments.  It may take me a long time, due to the vast amount of activities that previously occurred, but I vowed that I would do whatever was possible to bring the story of Extend a Hand For Justice to light.

Welcome to our new page, Extend a Hand For Justice, and as time permits, added information will be posted.
