WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2004, The Freedom Project is a 501c3 non-profit organization that serves wrongfully convicted persons in the prison system to obtain freedom.
To assist innocent men and women with legal representation where DNA is not involved, for crimes they did not commit.
DEMANDING FREEDOM NOW
The judicial system often traps men and women into prison for crimes they did not commit due to lack of adequate representation. Usually those individuals are incarcerated for over twenty (20) years; and unfortunately, some die while still incarcerated.
That's where organizations like The Freedom Project come into play to bridge the gap and be a representative of the wrongfully incarcerated. Our goal is to assist with legal representation, media exposure (news and documentaries), investigation and thorough research.
