The Wrongful Convictions Revolution™ is making great strides toward a legal system that is transparent and accountable to those who have already been wrongfully convicted and to keep it from happening to innocent people in the future.

"Most people find solace in being innocent; but those who have been wrongfully accused know that innocence is not a comforting companion in our legal system. Unfortunately, most law-abiding citizens think it can't possibly happen to them; that it only happens to those living on the fringes of society. However, that couldn't be further from the truth. It can, and has, happened to people from all walks of life. And make no mistake...it can happen to you." -Liz Franklin, M.S., Founding Director of Wrongful Convictions News™
"La mayoría de la gente encuentra consuelo al ser inocente; pero aquellos que han sido acusados injustamente saben que la idea de ser inocente no es un alivio en nuestro sistema legal. Desafortunadamente, la mayoría de los ciudadanos respetuosos de la ley piensan nunca les podría suceder; que solo les pasa a los que viven en zonas marginadas de la sociedad. Sin embargo, eso no podría estar más lejos de la realidad. Puede ser, y ha sucedido a personas de todos los ámbitos de la vida. Y te puede pasar a ti ... ¡no eres inmune!" -Liz Franklin
"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong."

"It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished."
Utilitarian philosopher John Stuart Mill, expanded when delivering an inaugural address in 1867at the University of St. Andrews and stated:
"Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing. He is not a good man who, without a protest, allows wrong to be committed in his name, and with the means which he helps to supply, because he will not trouble himself to use his mind on the subject."
Every October 2nd marks International Wrongful Conviction Day; a day to raise awareness of the causes of wrongful convictions and acknowledge the tremendous personal, social, economic, and emotional costs of wrongful convictions for innocent people and their families worldwide.
