Witness to Innocence

September 24, 2011

Witness to Innocence is the nation’s only organization composed of, by, and for exonerated death row survivors and their loved ones. By engaging them in public education programs, direct action, and legislative and media work, they empower their exoneree members to be leaders in the stuggle to end the death penalty in the United States, and to actively challenge the public to grapple with the reality of a fatally flawed criminal justice system that sends innocent people to death row. They also provide peer support for death row exonerees, and campaign for federal compensation for them.
