About After Innocence:
After Innocence provides effective, efficient re-entry assistance for America’s wrongfully convicted, and advocates for smart policy reform on their behalf.
After Innocence is working toward a not-too-distant future in which:
We acknowledge the real consequences of wrongful conviction, including on the lives of the wrongfully convicted and their families, and make reasonable, meaningful amends in that regard;
Every state provides a fair, transparent process by which a person who proves in court that he or she was actually innocent of the crime for which he or she was imprisoned will be eligible for meaningful compensation and re-entry assistance; and
Every exoneree in the United States will have access to a basic level of consistent, effective re-entry assistance to help them rebuild their lives after wrongful conviction.
