Innocence Blog Q&A with Ryan Phillippe

“If I can be one who’s a voice for the Innocence Project and for the work they’re doing, I’m going to speak up as loudly as I can.” Ryan Phillippe

Known for his work in Cruel Intentions, The Lincoln Lawyer and the new USA Network series Shooter, actor, activist and Innocence Ambassador Ryan Phillippe has been a staple of the Innocence Project’s Artist’s Committee and one of its most vocal members—an ardent voice advocating for criminal justice reform and in defense of the innocent.

Ahead of the 2016 Night Out to Benefit the Innocence Project gala where he was received as a 2016 Young Professionals Committee honoree, Ryan sat down with the Innocence Blog and told us why the Innocence Project today matters more than ever.
