Innocence Matters is a nonprofit organization formed in 2010 and dedicated to preventing wrongful convictions and honoring the truth. We provide direct representation for innocent people, though our work is primarily focused on the broader goals of education, prevention and reform. We are particularly interested in improving the quality of indigent defense services and implementing systemic changes that will better protect the innocentand encourage the defense community to more quickly acknowledge and correct errors. Our preventative programs are designed to bring lasting change and provide a broad toolkit for the innocent and their attorneys.
