Wednesday May 8th

Many people experience injustice in their lives. Some are vanquished by it. Others withstand, resist, and overcome it. Those who are not defeated, they mostly go on with their lives, often with their spirits depleted, their material resources exhausted.

For a few, however, the personal encounter with injustice somehow makes them better and bolder. They emerge from their personal trial with a sharper perception, a wider vision, a deeper sympathy, with spirits in full sail.

They are the voices of innocents.

On behalf of our Event Chair, Carolyn P. Short, please join the Pennsylvania Innocence Project for our 4th Anniversary party onWednesday, May 8th, as we celebrate those who provide a voice for individuals convicted of crimes they did not commit and prevent innocent people from being convicted.
