Join CPAU on April 19th at 7:00 pm at University Baptist & Brethren Church for the release of No Way Home, a documentary depicting a mother’s poignant journey to reunite her family and end mandatory life without parole in Pennsylvania. Witness the story of Lorraine Haw, affectionately known as Mrs. Dee Dee, as she navigates the aftermath of gun violence in Philadelphia. From the loss of her brother to a fatal altercation over a gold necklace to her son’s heartbreaking sentence, Mrs. Dee Dee’s narrative sheds light on the dual impact of gun violence and incarceration.

We will also highlight the case of a State College man, Subramanyam (Subu) Vedam, who was wrongfully convicted of murder in 1982 and sentenced to life without parole, leading to decades of trauma for him and his family. Authorities offered no witnesses, no motive, no weapon, or any other direct evidence tying him to the crime. Documents have recently surfaced showing that prosecutors knew Subu could not have committed the crime, and concealed that evidence from his defense. The effort to ultimately free Subu is ongoing, and the local community has an important part to play.

The night will conclude with a panel discussion.
