Just in time for its 25th anniversary, the Innocence Project is the centerpiece of Time magazine’s newly published special edition issue, Innocent: The Fight Against Wrongful Convictions. From its introduction—authored by New York Times columnist Jim Dwyer—to its last chapter, the issue explains how Innocence Project Co-Founders and Co-Directors Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck fostered a movement in America’s criminal justice system through the use of DNA technology and pays tribute to clients as well as to some of the many players who have become central to the work of exonerating innocent people.
Highlights include the following:
- Profiles on Innocence Project clients, including:
- Marvin Anderson, Steven Barnes, Lewis Fogle, Angel Gonzalez, Andre Hatchett, Michelle Murphy and Anthony Wright
- Profiles on Innocence Project Director of Post-Conviction Litigation Vanessa Potkin and Innocence Project Senior Staff Attorney Nina Morrison
- Members of the Innocence Network including California Innocence Project Executive Director Justin Brooks, Jim Coleman and Theresa Newman, co-directors of the Wrongful Convictions Clinic at Duke Law School, Jon Eldan from After Innocence, Ohio Innocence Project Director Mark Godsey and Innocence Project New Orleans Executive Director Emily Maw
The issue will go on sale on February 17. It’s available on Amazon or select newsstands.
