Your Chance to Help an Exoneree

With the tenth-annual Innocence Network Conference coming up next month, many exonerees and advocates will be gathering together in Atlanta to reflect on the year and discuss wrongful convictions and criminal justice reforms to prevent further injustice.

This year, there is unique opportunity for our supporters to help people who have been exonerated after serving years or decades in prison for crimes they didn’t commit. Without spending a dime, you can help send exonerees to Atlanta in April for the conference.

The Innocence Network conference is the only event all year where exonerees from around the country gather to network, receive support from one another, learn ways to cope and transition back into the world after prison, and find ways to prevent future wrongful convictions. This year has brought in the most requests for financial assistance for travel to the event. 

You can donate points through your credit card program or miles through your airline frequent-flier plan, and we will use all of the donations to help exonerees attend this important event. American Express Rewards Points are particularly easy to process, but we can also work with other credit card and airline programs.

Without donations of points or miles, we will have to say no to some of these requests.

Help us make this conference the best one yet for as many exonerees as possible. Donating points or miles only takes a minute, and it can have a profound impact on the exonerated.

To use your points or miles to help exonerees, please email

info@innocenceproject.org

and a staff member will get back to you quickly to make arrangements.
