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.

Our Objective

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.

WE ARE THE

CHANGEMAKERS

Our challenge has not only been to set the wrongfully convicted free, but to also change the laws that prohibit them from being compensated, and helping them re-adjust back into society and live normal productive lives with their children and families.
