We are powerful advocates for abolition

Witness to Innocence members are among the most powerful advocates for criminal justice reform and death penalty abolition in the United States. The death row exoneree members of Witness to Innocence use their unforgettable stories of being wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death to reach even the most steadfast supporters of the death penalty. Our members participate in speaking tours and marches, testify in legislatures, meet with state representatives to encourage legislative action, and more.
