MEDIA ALERT

Amanda Knox to Speak at Loyola University Chicago
Event Will Support Law Program that Advocates for
Innocent People Wrongfully Convicted

What:
Amanda Knox, whose case drew international attention, will be the featured speaker at a luncheon on Thursday, December 3, at Loyola University Chicago’s School of Law. Knox will discuss her wrongful conviction and personal experiences as an exoneree, as well as her work advocating on behalf of others wrongfully convicted. Funds raised at the event, A Conversation with Amanda Knox, will support Loyola’s Life After Innocence program, which assists innocent people released from prison by helping them reenter society, clear their records, and start their lives over.

Illinois State Senator Dan Kotowski will be honored at the luncheon for his work on behalf of those who have been wrongly convicted. Senator Kotowski assisted Loyola’s Life After Innocence program in passing important legislation reform that directly benefited exonerees in Illinois.

This event is open to the media, however, no filming or recording devices will be allowed during Amanda Knox’s remarks. Photography is permitted. Laura Caldwell, director of Loyola’s Life After Innocence program, will be available for interviews following the event. For more information, visit: LUC.edu/law/LAI.
