1) Facilitate guest lectures and related presentations on pertinent issues.


2) Organize community service activities in line with the organization’s mission.

 

3) Ensure CUA presence at the annual Innocence Network conference.

The Innocence Network Conference will be held March 30-31, 2011 in Kansas City, MO. Hosted by the Midwestern Innocence Project! This conference often features exonerees as speakers, along with a variety of informational sessions on current problems in the exoneration of prisoners, new cases, new techniques that may assist in the missions of the Innocence Project and much more!  

 In the past we have been able to send one to four students to the annual conference hosted by the Innocence Network. This conference often features exonerees as speakers, along with a variety of informational sessions on current problems in the exoneration of prisoners, new cases, new techniques that may assist in the mission of the Innocence Project, and much more. This activity has typically been school funded, therefore space is limited. So in order to send more students this year we will be fundraising. Representatives are selected via an application process and typically must commit to applying for the clinic for the following year. To assist in the application process we will keep track of attendance at meetings and events.

Many of the exonerees took the stage for one final song at the "Let Freedom Sing" concert to end the Innocence Network Conference, 2011.
