FREEING THE INNOCENT

Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project (MAIP) celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. MAIP is a is a life-saving resource for many residents of the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland. MAIP fi ghts injustice by bringing comprehensive legal assistance to regional residents facing wrongful convictions and incarceration. And to create a brighter, more just future for our region, MAIP directly engages our legal, judicial, and law enforcement leaders to educate them and the public of the problems that can lead to these wrongful convictions and incarcerations. To date, MAIP has secured the exoneration or release of 19 innocent men. These men spent a total of 234 years in prison—lost years with their children and families, and as active members of their communities—a massive injury to justice. JusticeAid is thrilled to pattern with MAIP on May 17th at the Lincoln Theatre.
