Board of Directors

Proving Innocence (PI) is a grassroots movement and is governed by a dedicated group of citizens who volunteer to combat the injustice of wrongful convictions. The purpose of the Board is to establish PI’s direction and oversee the fulfillment of its mission. The requirement for Board membership is to have a passion about wrongful convictions, helping innocent individuals, and reforming the system that has caused so much suffering. Participation is welcome both face-to-face and on-line. Inquiries may be directed to any of the board members.

Bill retired in 2018, having served as a Network Administrator at SEMCOG (Southeast Michigan Council of Governments) for 20 years. He grew up in the Chicago area and received a B.A. from Northwestern University.

Bill has always had a heart for oppressed people. When his wife, Kate, took the class on Wrongful Convictions, taught by Dr. Marvin Zalman, now one of PI's advisers, Bill became keenly interested. The Branhams helped found PI with Bill Proctor. Bill Branham has remained actively involved ever since, including the development and maintenance of PI's original and new website.

Bill and Kate have been married for 20 years and have 7 children, ages 27 to 42.
