witness to innocence annual gathering


Each year, Witness to Innocence brings together death row exonerees, their families and loved ones, staff, and Board Members for an extended weekend.

At the Gathering, members participate in speaking events and "Visibility Action" community outreach to spread the word about the need for death penalty abolition. It also gives exonerees the opportunity to spend time together for empowerment, community, and recommitment to their cause. 

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Micki Dickoff made a film titled The Gathering about the story of Witness to Innocence. Click here to watch the trailer and learn more.
