Established in 2005, the Innocence Network counts over 70 independent organizations as members, most of which represent people who have been wrongfully convicted and are fighting to prove their innocence.
The Innocence Network now counts 71 organizations as part of their coalition, and together they work to combat wrongful convictions.
The majority of the Innocence Network’s members are based in the United States and are mainly focused on criminal justice reform in the United States, but the Network also includes non-U.S. organizations that meet its membership criteria.
The Network maintains an International Committee, and they strongly encourage the development of other networks of innocence organizations around the world, recognizing them as critically important partners in this work globally.
Currently, the Network includes 59 U.S.-based organizations and 12 organizations located outside of the U.S.
Since 1989, over 3,200 wrongful convictions have been revealed across the nation with individuals collectively losing 27,200 years serving time for crimes they did not commit.
You can help to ensure there is a pathway for the innocent. It’s a daunting task to know there are some denied freedom and who are incarcerated on false charges.
