Stand for Innocence 2020

Our team has been working hard to re-imagine our most important fundraiser of the year. Throughout the month of September, we will release a series of short videos, each featuring one of the members of WashIP’s Freed and Exonerated family. Each video will give you a glimpse into their lives in freedom and deepen your understanding of the true impact of wrongful conviction.

While we will truly miss gathering with you face to face this year, we are excited about the opportunity to reach more of you at once. Last year you helped us raise over $120,000 and this year we have an even more ambitious goal. Check back each week for new videos, invite your friends to follow along on this virtual fundraising journey, and make a donation between now and October 31st to help us meet our goal!
