Red Inocente Conference 2014

The Red Inocente conference in Bogota, Colombia this past weekend was an incredible success.  We had over 800 participants attend, including Angelino Garzon, the former ex-president of Colombia.  Staff attended from international innocence projects in Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru.  The conference was hosted by the Colombia Innocence Project at the Universidad Manuela Beltrán, which boasts 8 exonerations in the past 5 years.

Red Inocente is a legal education program that offers assistance to legal professionals in Latin America to create projects dedicated to the release of those wrongly convicted.  We also create and develop legislative reforms to reduce the number of wrongful convictions.  Red Inocente was based on more than a decade of success by the both the California Innocence Project and Proyecto ACCESO.
