Pittsburgh Celebration 2023: Thank You!

Pittsburgh Celebration 2023: Thank You! Thank you to all guests and sponsors of our annual celebration event in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, October 25th! We are particularly grateful to our event sponsors, including those sponsors who supported both our Philadelphia and Pittsburgh events this year. See our full list of sponsors here.


This year's event built on the theme of the 
10th annual Wrongful Conviction Day earlier in October - Building a Legacy. During the event, we heard from special guest speakers including our higher education partners, former Project interns, and freed and exonerated clients.

In the words of Duquesne Kline Law School Dean April Barton, "Thank you to all of you who are part of the Innocence Project for giving so generously of your time and expertise. Thank you for providing the wrongfully convicted with hope, when there is often only despair. Thank you for serving as a voice for those who are unable to advocate for themselves. Thank you for holding a candle in the darkness. And thank you for impacting lives for the better. We are extremely grateful for your unending pursuit of justice." 

About Wrongful Conviction Day

Wrongful Conviction Day is an initiative designed to raise awareness of the causes and tremendous costs of wrongful conviction to innocent people and their families. This year on Wrongful Conviction Day, a compelling video featuring PA Innocence Project clients was released by Grammy Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical artist Rhiannon Giddens. See the video and learn more here.
