Freedom is the first step.

Our biggest struggles are not always in the courtroom. Once liberated, our exonerees face a host of difficult re-entry barriers. Separated from their loved ones and society for decades, returning home comes with an array of financial, emotional, and physical challenges.

Assist Exonerees

While our clients–those who have served their time and continue to fight their wrongful conviction, and exonerees alike–are their own best advocates, we all need a hand from time to time. The best way that you can help an EP client get back on their feet is to recommend affordable housing and friendly employers. It is very hard to be released from prison after decades spent struggling to survive wrongful incarceration only to encounter the very real struggle of re-entry into a society that offers very little in the way of rehabilitative or social services.

In addition, exonerees and wrongful conviction survivors often organize their own crowdfunding and small businesses that you can support directly. The following is an active list.

Businesses & Employers

Exonerees have lost years of their life to wrongful conviction, and with that time they lost the opportunity to build a secure and stable future. Friendly employers, those who recognize the resilient spirit and boundless determination of our clients, are the best pathway for an exoneree rebuild their life. Our exonerees are looking for a wide range of part-time, full- time, skill-building and networking opportunities. To inquire about current job seekers and EP partnerships, please email or call our office today.


Intern or Volunteer

We welcome motivated students, attorneys, and community members to join us in the fight against wrongful convictions. The criminal justice system is not perfect. When innocent people are convicted of crimes they did not commit, the consequences for their lives and the lives of their families are truly devastating. In order to restore justice for exonerees, we rely on hard working individuals working together to bring about meaningful change in and outside of the courtroom. There are many ways to become involved, and we invite you to email or call our office today to explore unique ways you can contribute. Visit the Exoneration Project on Idealist for ongoing opportunities.
