The Western Pennsylvania Committee of the Board of Directors invites you to a program celebrating the achievements of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. The evening will feature fascinating conversations among several of our pro bono and staff attorneys who will discuss the challenges, the rewards and the impact of litigating to free innocent individuals — actually innocent people incarcerated, often for decades, for crimes they did not commit. A moderated Q & A session will follow the formal program.
Legal Director Nilam A. Sanghvi, and Liz DeLosa, managing attorney in Pittsburgh, will be joined by our pro bono attorney partners: Jay Evans of Schnader Harrison Segal Lewis LLP, Jim Figorski of Dechert LLP, and Susan Metcalfe of Potomac Law Group for a dynamic discussion on the struggle to exonerate innocent people who are wrongly convicted.
They will share the stories of their work with the PA Innocence project representing three innocent clients; two who are still fighting for exoneration, and one - Daniel Carnevale - who was exonerated last year on March 17, 2020.
From intake to exoneration, the road to freedom for our people who are wrongly convicted is long and full of twists and turns. We are thrilled to share the story of our work with you and invite you to join us in the fight.
We hope that you will become join us at this important event.
