The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

OUR Work

The Innocence Project's mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.

The Team

We are a diverse group of people with a deep passion for justice and reforming our legal system.

The Innocence Network is a group of independent organizations that exonerate and support the innocent, and redress the causes of wrongful conviction.
