Young Professionals support the Innocence Project at NYC event

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.

The event raised money for the

, which supports Innocence Project clients with basic necessities like housing, shelter and clothing after their release.
