DNA testing has exonerated 266 innocent people in the United States, including 17 who were on death row.
Nobody knows how many more innocent people remain behind bars in our country, or how many people were convicted this week, this month or this year of crimes they didn't commit based on unreliable forensic science or eyewitness misidentification.
The Innocence Project provides pro-bono post-conviction legal assistance to individuals that are seeking to prove their innocence with DNA testing and works to enact the reforms needed to protect innocent Americans from wrongful prosecution and incarceration.
With your support, the Innocence Project is fighting to overturn wrongful convictions and enacting reforms across the country based on the lessons of their work.

I hope you will be as generous as possible. Your commitment to justice means the world to me and especially to the wrongfully convicted individuals seeking to prove their innocence.
