Death row exonerees, and the issue of innocence, have been pivotal in every state that has abolished the death penalty in the last 15 years.
Shockingly, most death row exonerees receive little to no financial compensation for the years taken by wrongful conviction. They often have no housing and no reliable social supports upon their release, and they are ineligible for most reentry services. With felony records and gaping holes in their resumes, they face challenges finding employment.
