Wrongful Conviction Day 2018

Innocence Canada is recognizing two milestones of our organization on Wednesday, October 3, 2018: the 5th anniversary of Wrongful Conviction Day and the 25th anniversary of our organization. We have a lot to celebrate this year.

In 2014, in an effort to give a face and a voice to the wrongly convicted and enlighten the public as to the consequences of wrongful convictions, Innocence Canada launched Wrongful Conviction Day. This is an international event, commemorated annually at the beginning of October. The momentum and participation has grown each year as more and more organizations and individuals join to make as much impact as possible in our common goal of avoiding and remedying wrongful convictions.

This year, we are hosting an event which is open and free to the public. A meet & greet take place between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. The programme will begin at 6:00 p.m. The evening will be a tribute to the wrongly convicted and their families’ strength during their long battle to justice.

We look forward to welcoming our friends and supporters.
