Artists, Activists & Authors After Hours: After Innocence Discussion

The award-winning After Innocence tells the dramatic and compelling story of the exonerated—innocent men wrongfully imprisoned for decades and then released after DNA proved their innocence. Thrust into society, ignored by the government, with no money, no jobs and no support—how do these men reclaim their lives? What happens when our criminal justice system fails and imprisons the WRONG person?

Please join the Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council before the screening for a panel discussion with Rob Warden, Director of the Centeron Wrongful Convictions, and Lola Vollen, Co-Founder of the Life After Exoneration Program.
