Help Fix Florida’s Compensation Law

Florida exoneree Clemente Aguirre-Jarquin.

Stand with the innocent and support fair compensation next year.

Florida’s exoneree compensation law is broken. Only four of more than 30 exonerees have been compensated since the law passed in 2008.

Thanks to Floridans who made over 100 contacts with their state senators and representatives this year, legislation to fix compensation got further in the state house than ever has before. The bill passed 6 committees, but ultimately didn’t pass the full Senate and House before session ended on March 13th. 

The good news is that you helped lay the groundwork for future success. Now is the time to start talking to your state lawmakers and building momentum before the 2021 session.
