The Innocence Project’s new Young Professionals Committee held its first fundraiser on Monday night at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. The event was a success, featuring speeches by Innocence Project Co-Director Barry Scheck and exoneree David Shephard, who served more than nine years in New Jersey for a crime he didn’t commit. Above, Scheck and Shephard onstage at the event.
The event raised money for the
Innocence Project Exoneree Fund
, which supports Innocence Project clients with basic necessities like housing, shelter and clothing after their release.
