“I preach to my kids, ‘Just tell the truth. Be true to who you are,’” Antron McCray, proud father of six, told CBS News last month. “Honestly, the last time I lied, got me 7.5 years for something I didn’t do.”

All year round, we’re inspired by the courage and resilience of dads who were wrongfully convicted. Will you help us honor them by sending an uplifting Father’s Day message today?

For exonerated dads like Antron and his fellow exonerees Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson and Raymond Santana, Father’s Day is a reminder to celebrate the strength they show for themselves and their families, even if it’s also a bittersweet reminder of the years lost.

And for those wrongfully convicted fathers still fighting for freedom, it’s a day to honor their struggle and resilience. This Father’s Day, help us remind wrongfully convicted dads that we’re standing with them and fighting for the day they’ll be reunited with their families too.

Send a Father’s Day message to courageous dads who endured wrongful conviction. It will make their day.

    Hi, I am French and I write you from Spain,
    I have just seen the four episodes and then the special with Oprah.
    Your story his terrible and I was also 14years old in 1989…I can t imagine what you have been through and I think that you all diserve your story to be told just as it has be done.I would like to say to Mister Antron MacCray that i was very sad when i saw you at the Oprah show.
    Even if what you have been through is very very very hard, please just try for you,your wife and your six kids to begin to enjoy your life.I think it s not fair for you to be so angry, you have the right to be happy Antron.You have the right to be happy!They can t steal this from you big man!They already stole you too much.
    Don t give them the pleasure to loose more of your valious time.
    Best regards from someone from another part of the world.

    I am literally obsessed with the new 4-part series “When They See Us” and this case. I now want to help the wrongfully convicted, because I was really inspired by this event. I really look up to you Kevin, Antron, Raymond, Yusef, and Korey, and Happy Fathers Day, Kevin, Antron, Raymond, and Yusef. God Bless You all, and thank you for staying strong with those smiles on your faces! 🙂
