INNOCENCE NETWORK & EXONERATIONSThe 69 orgs that make up the Innocence Network, together with wrongfully convicted people and their families, have secured over 650 exonerations. But there is still much more to be done. This #WrongfulConvictionDay consider supporting your local Innocence Network Organization.
INNOCENCE NETWORK & WRONGFUL INCARCERATIONNo innocent person should ever spend a day in prison, and yet innocent people are wrongfully convicted and incarcerated, both in the U.S. and in countries around the world everyday. Collectively, clients of Innocence Network orgs have spent 10,400+ years wrongfully incarcerated.
LONGEST WRONGFUL INCARCERATIONIn the US, the longest wrongful incarceration on record is 50 yrs. The fact that there are innocent people who have spent decades in prison should shock us to our core & move us to action. This #WrongfulConvictionDay connect with your local #InnocenceNetwork org & join the fight.
