The past two weeks we’ve been working tirelessly to put together the database of exonerations. Through my research I’ve learned about the horrible injustices that plague our justice system. Learning about these injustices makes me want to proactively prevent them.
We’ve also heard from a handful of speakers the last week. Yesterday we heard from Rob Warden, head of the Center on Wrongful Convictions. He shared his personal experiences working in the field as well as stories. I felt honored that he took the time to speak with us and encouraged us to continue researching and being active in the changes that are currently happening, especially regarding the death penalty.
