Take action TODAY and demand Freedom for the wrongly incarcerated and innocent defendants by supporting the work of the The Innocent Convicts’ (TIC) founder and partners as INDIVIDUALS, through COLLECTIVE ACTION and with DONATIONS when and however you will. TIC invites you to watch its films, share this website, follow the project on Facebook or volunteer your time. Like TIC, its partners, supporters and friends please purchase and be proud to wear our official gear.

You can ATTEND one of the monthly events, currently held on Zoom.  Examples are workshops, book club readings, “write-ins”, “social justice” hours, a film series, speaker nights, community chats, the MLK Justice Lunch, quarterly donor drives and the annual fundraising gala.  Check the MORE section weekly for opportunities to participate in local, regional and national events/actions!

If you enjoy a TIC event and like it, please WRITE a positive comment on the testimonial or blank space in the contact section.  Narratives are needed to support TIC’s work developing entrepreneurial options for those who have undeserved criminal records due to wrongful convictions.

Please use SOCIAL MEDIA to tell your friends, family and colleagues about TIC’s events.  Fighting an entire system of societal injustices takes a unified effort. Seek ways to support similar work in your OWN community.  Building momentum across neighborhoods takes time and focused effort.

VOLUNTEER your time if for even 2 hours per month.  People of color seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time too often…and receive unlawful treatment.  We need collective action!

Use different resources to EDUCATE yourself to enhance your understanding and develop a deeper sense of commitment.  Discussions of selected books, and sometimes workshops, end with a “social justice hour” which features BYOE (everything)!

Please RESPOND when asked to write a legislator or some other official or even, attend a local action meeting, sit-in or even, protest.  There is strength in numbers!

Be proud and announce your participation by WEARING the buttons, T-shirts and even the “Break the Chain” ©2019, [T-shirt design by Ariel] included in (Her'tazhe) wear.

"I made a special effort to attend Chris Wilson's book signing for "The Master Plan" after my cousin from Her'tazhe and Osagie called me from Boston.  Even though I was across the country the three of us supported yet another black male whose entire "wrongful" life experience as a youth resulted in circumstances that landed him in prison.  In this instance, Chris had committed the crime.  However, his authentic retelling and ultimate release were motivational.  After that experience I pledged to support those imprisoned along the continuum from wrongfully convicted to "circumstantially" entrapped LIVING WHILE BLACK (or as a person of color)."  John Walker, Los Angeles
