The Atlanta Hawks recently published a communication indicating Thabo Sefolosha’s intent to make a sizable donation to Gideon’s Promise. AJMLS Professor Jonathan Rapping is the President and Founder of organization. Gideon’s Promise was formed to help change the criminal justice system by fostering a groundswell of public protectors who supply equivalent justice for marginalized communities. The organization supplies indispensable training to public defenders.
Mr. Sefolosha received a $4 million settlement from the New York Police Department in conjunction with a federal suit the Atlanta Hawks forward filed following his April 2015 arrest.
