Prosecutors hold enormous power in the US criminal legal system. In most states, they're elected officials, meaning they're accountable to constituents. It's up to us to voice our collective commitment to truth, justice, & compassion every day & at the polls.

Midterm elections are approaching. Learn who is running for office in your district and what policies they support, then make a plan to VOTE. #WrongfulConvictionDay

Mass incarceration ensnares the innocent and inflicts trauma on parents, children, spouses, siblings, friends, and communities.

Systemic racism and structural oppression drive mass incarceration and produce wrongful conviction.

This #WrongfulConvictionDay, we acknowledge how the prison industrial complex harms us all.

Over 50% of exonerees report symptoms of PTSD and/or major depressive disorder– higher rates than among military veterans. This #WrongfulConvictionDay we recognize that reentry is an ongoing, long-term, variable process requiring extensive networks of support & collective care.
