The only way we can free more innocent people is with your support.

We rely on private dollars. We don’t receive funding from the state of Washington, the Innocence Project in New York City, or the Innocence Network. Your donations help us cover costs required to request documents for investigation, visit clients in prison, obtain DNA testing, consult forensic experts, and more. The results from one DNA test, which can cost as little as $600, can be life-changing for an innocent prisoner.

Working in collaboration, we can amplify our impact.

Wrongful convictions are just one piece of the criminal justice reform landscape and we know that, in order to achieve true justice, there is so much more work to be done. If you are working individually or as part of an organization within the criminal justice reform movement, we’d love to talk about how we can support your work.
