Thank you for being such a generous supporter of the Innocence Project. I can’t tell you how much it means to our Innocence Project team here and to all of our clients who are still waiting for justice.

This holiday season, we’re counting on you to help deliver the best gift of all—freedom—to more wrongfully convicted people across the U.S.

Would you consider starting a Facebook fundraiser to invite your friends to join you in the fight for meaningful criminal justice reform?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. 1. Head to our Facebook Fundraising page, set a goal and a deadline for your fundraiser! Most people start with a goal of $200.
  2. 2. Describe why you’re raising money for the Innocence Project! Maybe you think it’s wrong that exonerated people often don’t receive compensation for the time they spent wrongfully incarcerated. Maybe you or someone you love has been affected by the flawed criminal justice system. Whatever your reason, a personal story will make your fundraiser shine.
  3. 3. Pick a cover photo, and get started sharing by inviting your friends to contribute! The more people you invite, the more you’re likely to raise.

Start your fundraiser today, just in time for the holiday season:

Start my fundraiser

Your support is what keeps the Innocence Project team fighting for justice. Thank you for standing with us!

    I will start a fundraiser. I was illegally and unjustly arrested by UNM Campus Pokice (University of New Mexico). Albuquerque Police Department (APD) are liable, as are the FBI. Bernalillo County Sheriffs Department is also liable for things that have happened to me. APD kidnapped me, TWICE.

    Luckily, I have Senaror Joseph Cervantes, to help me. I do not know, what, I would do, without him!

    There is SO much corruption in New Mexico! The current and former Governor, Senators, it is so sad. Joseph fights corruption and stands up for whistle blowers. The Attorney General does not investigate. I have reported Medicaid Fraud to the news, FBI, State Licensing Board, Attorney General, and it has not been investigated. I have reported the State Medical Examiner for drinking and doing autopsies, she has not beenn investigted, and the paper, told me, they cannot publish a story, because, they “do not have the power to publish stories.”

    Kind Regards,
    April S. Perkins
