Since 1989, over 2,100 men and women have been exonerated for crimes they did not commit. They served a total of 18,590 years. Although each of their stories is unique, their collective experience reveals the hard truths about the criminal justice system and its treatment of race and class. Tricia Bushnell, JD, director of the Midwest Innocence Project, will discuss the known causes of wrongful convictions, policies and solutions to prevent the conviction of the innocent, and our social obligation to change the system and prevent future injustice. 

Open to the Public
