After Innocence

Re-Entry Assistance and Advocacy for America's Wrongfully Convicted

After Innocence provides re-entry assistance and advocacy for America's wrongfully convicted


After Innocence is already working with more than 500 exonerees across 48 states, and collaborating with nearly every innocence organization in the country to reach as many more exonerees as possible, whether they have been out of prison for two weeks or two decades. 

Here’s our three-part program:

1. Coordinating access to health care, social services, public benefits and legal services for individual exonerees in their own communities 

2. Documenting exonerees’ experiences after release; and


3. Advocating for laws that fairly compensate exonerees for time lost, and assist them with the road ahead.
