Who We Are

Midwest Innocence Project represents individuals convicted of crimes they did not commit, we work to bring them home, support them upon re-entry, and change the system to prevent wrongful convictions in the first place. We are an independent innocence organization that is a part of the national Innocence Network. Our partnerships with law firms, law schools, and volunteers allow us to provide the very best representation at no cost to innocent people within our region.
