Defenders of the Innocent Event

Register Now Button 







The Exoneree Band

Five innocent men survived the ultimate injustice - conviction for crimes they did not commit. They lost a collective 92 years of their lives to wrongful imprisonment. Through storytelling and original songs, they share their experiences of wrongful conviction and imprisonment and, ultimately, justice.

Appearing thanks to a generous donation from Illinois Exoneree Juan Rivera
