Loyola Celebrates Life After Innocence Project
Join the Exoneree Band and Members of the Loyola Community to Rock in the Name of Justice
Join Loyola University Chicago for a celebration sponsored by its faculty and students who participate in the School of Law’s clinical program “Life After Innocence,” which advocates for wrongfully convicted people.
The celebration will feature a guest performance by the Exoneree Band, whose members have served a combined total of 87 years in prison for crimes they did not commit.
Life After Innocence at Loyola University Chicago was founded by Chicago lawyer and author Laura Caldwell (JD ’92). The program advocates for wrongfully convicted people adversely affected by the criminal justice system, helping them reenter society and enabling them to reclaim their rights as citizens through individualized legal and support services and wide-reaching public policy initiatives.
The celebration, which is free and open to the public, will include complimentary beverages, and light hors d’oeuvres. Donations that will help support the work of the program can be made online at LUC.edu/law/lifeafterinnocence/donate.
