My son has been incarcerated for over twenty years in Birmingham, AL. This organization has been involved in trying to get his conviction overturned for l know at lease 15 years or more of the twenty years . Mrs.Whitman has traveled to Alabama on many occasions to investigate different leads ,talk to witnesses and court officials pertaining to his case. She has worked side by side with the lawyers involved. She has never given up and is always there to help in every possible way. Ready to help find an answer to a question, that I might have ,research and investigate any new leads. This situation has been a living nightmare with no end. But I have found comfort in knowing that this organization is on our side and that Mrs. Claudia Whitman is what I would call a hard worker and dedicated individual that goes the extra miles and beyond to right the wrongs of a broken, cruel and unfair justice system. I am grateful for the opportunity to give voice to such a wonderful organization that my son, and I will be forever grateful for.

This is a nonprofit founded and run by one woman, Claudia Whitman. She commits a great amount of her time to working for the exoneration of innocent prisoners. She takes no salary for herself, and works out of her own home, so any donations go directly to helping the unjustly imprisoned.
Estimates say that it is possible that up to 10% of the prison population nationwide is innocent, and DNA exonerations are growing all the time. These people have fallen between the cracks and have no one to help them. Many say that until they wrote to NCCAN, they were able to receive no assistance at all. NCCAN provides support to prisoners and their families, and does what it takes to get these people back into court, where they have a chance to fight for their freedom. These activities can be mundane, such as correspondence, or dramatic, such as running a crowdfunding drive to retain a lawyer for an individual.
