WHAT HAPPENS TO INNOCENCE AFTER INCARCERATION?
Each year, we hear about more innocent people being released from prison in the United States.
Today, there are over 400 exonerated men and women who have been wrongly convicted and victimized by our criminal justice system.
On average, each has served more than 10 years in prison before being released.
Resurrection After Exoneration (RAE) was founded in 2007 by exonerees to promote and sustain a network of support among formerly wrongfully incarcerated individuals in the South. RAE works to reconnect exonerees to their communities and provide access to those opportunities of which they were robbed.
RAE is an offspring of the non-profit law office, Innocence Project New Orleans (IPNO) .
