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.

Dr. Zieva Dauber Konvisser earned her PhD in human development at Fielding Graduate University. She is a Fellow of the Institute for Social Innovation at Fielding and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Wayne State University. As a researcher, her work focuses on the human impact of traumatic events, such as terrorism, genocide, combat, and wrongful conviction, and the possibility of positive change. Her passion is to give voice to trauma survivors, in particular the innocent women who have been wrongfully convicted and freed or exonerated, and to learn from them about their experiences and their unique qualities and needs. She is the Oral Historian at the Holocaust Center in Farmington Hills, MI, served on the National Commission on American Jewish Women, and is currently on the international board of METIV: The Israel Psychotrauma Center, the advisory board of Strength to Strength, the board of Proving Innocence, and the Innocence Network Research Review Committee.
