We Got a Makeover!

Oct 1, 2020 | News

Dear Friends of The Sunny Center,

Our online presence has undergone a makeover! Since we can’t meet in person these days, we decided to put more of our personality and our energy into our online presence. where we can all meet and share news, hopes, dreams, good news and accomplishments.

We are proud to introduce you to our new website:

We are so excited to have this new website that will offer support online for Exonerees and anyone needing a place to find some positive energy during these difficult times, and to provide a space for our supporters to visit and get updates on all that we’re doing to help people who were wrongfully convicted to build healthier, happier lives.

Sometimes it’s hard to believe how far we’ve come on this journey together to provide healing, family and community for those who have suffered from the injustice of wrongful convictions. We are here because of your support and the trust that we have established between us. In these days of isolation and disconnection, these things are more important than ever.

We won’t leave anyone behind! Our older website will redirect automatically to sunnycenter.org. We’ve got you covered.  To save a little time, bookmark sunnycenter.org.

Sunnycenter.org doesn’t just look beautiful, it is also much more robust, easier for us to update, and more secure. It’s designed to grow with us.

Take some time to visit and look around!

Let us know what you think by commenting on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or by email at contact@sunnycenter.org.

See you online! May the World Wide Web continue to connect us! May we continue to support each other in our shared efforts to keep the love and the healing and the connections flowing and growing!

Peace and Love,
Sunny and Peter

It Takes A Community to Help Exonerees Heal

What an amazing summer this has been. We’ve been at home, raising a litter of kittens in our polytunnel and collecting eggs from our hens. And at the same time we have been able to reach out into the world and continue helping Exonerees.

Have you seen Sunny on YouTube?

Yoga and meditation are so central to our life and work at The Sunny Center. We meditate each morning to help us approach the day with a calm, clear mind (and some extra energy)!

Exonerees are succeeding, thanks to you!

Helping people exonerated of crimes they did not commit, setting them back on the path to a fulfilling life, is a monumental task that we depend on the dedication of volunteers, both near and far, to achieve.

For Exonerees, life’s little legal challenges can be huge

Exonerees face many challenges as they rebuild their lives after a wrongful conviction. One of the things that takes a backseat, as they struggle to access essentials like a place to live, medical care, and work, is thinking about how they will be cared for if they get sick.

Sometimes, it takes a (small) army

Terry Wanzer fought for more than 20 years to have his record cleared, even though he was exonerated in 1996. Our friend and volunteer Carrie is working to stop injustices like this.

How to Avoid Toxicity

At a time when it seems so many people in the world are expressing so much anger and hatred, how do you maintain your balance? Watch my latest video and share with us on social media!

About Our Wish List Program

One of our most impactful programs that arose during, and because of, the Covid-19 pandemic is the Wish List program. Through this, people who want to help an Exoneree directly can do so.

Wishing You a Summer of Healing, Hope and Joy

While the start of summer certainly feels much calmer and more certain than it did last year, plenty of activity is going on at The Sunny Center!

More Than 2,700 Exonerees Need Your Help

The need for resources and change within the system is immense. But together, we can start making a difference right away!

You Can Make A Difference for Exonerees Right Now

We are happy and hopeful that we can soon return to working in person with fellow Exonerees. But you can help us right now, even from far away.
