In our five-state area, between 1,500 and 5,000 people are currently locked behind bars for crimes they did not commit. On average, it takes 7-10 years to exonerate an innocent prisoner, at a cost of $325,000 per case. It also requires a skilled team of litigators, investigators, and support staff to free just one wrongfully convicted person. Your attendance and participation at our events directly impacts our ability to continue working towards our mission of advocating for these innocent men and women.
