MIP received a gift in memory of a dear friend and supporter and we wanted to say thank you, our hearts go out to you all.

"On December 23, 2020, we lost our beloved friend and law school classmate, Lisa Demaree, to cancer. The loss of Lisa has left us heartbroken. We wanted to honor her and her amazing spirit with a gift to the Midwest Innocence Project (MIP). As a student at UMKC law, Lisa was deeply committee to the mission of MIP and was a tireless advocate for those wrongfully convicted. In the words of her husband, Luke Demaree, Lisa had “one mission in life, to fix the whole world.” After graduating from UMKC law in 2005, she worked for MIP to free those falsely imprisoned. It is our hope that this gift in Lisa’s honor will further the work of those seeking justice and the release for those wrongfully convicted in the Midwest."
