“Let us remember those who have been wrongfully convicted and who sit in the darkened world of prisons as if we were one of them. Then let us help them to maintain their dignity, as they work towards proving their innocence.”
The Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted (AIDWYC) is hosting events in recognition of the second International Wrongful Conviction Day, October 2, 2015. The purpose of International Wrongful Conviction Day is to bring awareness to the need to prevent and remedy wrongful convictions around the world.
CCJC Board Member Sharon Dunlop has developed a short powerpoint to raise awareness: Click here to view the presentation.
