Backed by ongoing and generous support, the Innocence Project serves as the home base for the Network Support Unit, a group of organizational development professionals who work collaboratively with leaders within the Innocence Network to build capacity in the innocence movement. The Innocence Network is a coalition of independently funded innocence organizations working in all 50 states and in 12 countries outside of the U.S.
Over the last two years, the Network Support Unit (NSU) convened network members to facilitate stronger connections and share skills, manage collective events and initiatives, and develop key partnerships to raise awareness of wrongful convictions.
