Who We Are
The Nebraska Innocence Project is a nonprofit organization whose primary purpose is to provide pro bono legal assistance to incarcerated individuals who have been wrongly convicted of crimes in Nebraska and who no longer have a right to court-appointed counsel.
We also educate the public about the problem of wrongful convictions and support reforms in the criminal justice system that will help prevent factually innocent people from being convicted in the future.
Working to exonerate the innocent, educate the public, and improve the criminal justice system.
The future we want is one in which the incarcerated innocent have been exonerated, the public is aware of the problem and the need to monitor the criminal justice system, and the criminal justice system has been changed in ways that prevent wrongful convictions.
