Target demographics: the innocent

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help raise awareness about Innocence Matters' work!

Programs: the I Am Innocent seminar that teaches the innocent how to prevent their wrongful conviction and the Ganging Up on Innocence investigation program to help people who have already been wrongfully convicted.

Mission:
We believe the innocent should not be incarcerated and when mistakes are discovered we should all join forces to correct the error and free the innocent quickly.

Our work is primarily focused on the broader goals of education, prevention and reform. We are particularly interested in improving the quality of indigent defense services and implementing systemic changes that will better protect the innocent and encourage the legal community to more quickly acknowledge and correct errors. Our preventative programs are designed to bring about lasting change and provide a broad toolkit for the innocent and their attorneys.
Results:
On September 24, 2012, our first client John Edward Smith was finally freed and reunited with his family after serving 19 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
