This year's Innocence Conference will be held April 8 - 9 in San Antonio, Tx.
There is nothing quite like it. When Professor Marvin Zalman asked Kate Branham, one of his students, if she might be interested in attending, she immediately went home and talked with Bill.
They came back from Boston, knowing they had to be involved in this justice movement. Within a few months, they helped Bill Proctor in establishing Proving Innocence. Bill Branham says, "There is nothing more exciting and life-changing then being involved in helping a person become exonerated. Trouble is, that doesn't happen to a lot of people. But anyone can go to an Innocence Conference. It will change your life, as it did ours. And who knows? You might end up helping to exonerate a person after all. The quality of people is mind blowing. Forget the lawyer jokes. These people really care. Never met an exoneree before? You'll be rubbing shoulders with them. Don't know how to get involved? Sometimes you just have to immerse yourselves until you find your way, and there is no better place!"
Who likes to go to another city to a conference where you don't know anyone? Not many. Contact Proving Innocence and ask who else might be going from the Detroit area, and we'll put you in touch with them.
Go to http://innocencenetwork.org/conference and sign up. A portion of your conference fee will go to assisting exonerees to attend at no cost to themselves.
Bill Proctor, founder of Proving Innocence, is the subject of an extensive article by the BBC New Magazine. Bill has now retired from his TV journalist career. He continues to pursue justice and to confront the systemic sickness that leads to so many wrongful convictions. Read the entire article by clicking on this sentence.
It is worth noting that although Bill can now devote more attention to several different cases, Proving Innocence continues to have a severe shortage of funds.
