Dencity had the opportunity to anchor the first ever legislative hearing for innocent convicts at the Massachusetts State Assembly in January of 2020. This event brought attention to the plight of victims of wrongful conviction-providing a chance for reflection and inspiration as this widespread under-explored issue was highlighted at the state’s highest level. The performance entity, under the leadership of Michelle (La Poetica) Richardson, is proud to identify with the purpose of The Innocent Convicts Organization.
