New Fund Honors Larry Golden, Founding Director of Illinois Innocence Project
Dr. Larry Golden, Emeritus Professor of Political Studies and Legal Studies at UIS, remembers sitting in a little auditorium in San Diego in 2001, hearing the stories of people who had been exonerated. They said, “If it weren’t for the work you did, I would have been put to death by now.” These stories took Larry’s commitment to the Illinois Innocence Project to the next level, and today he serves as Founding Director for the Project.
in honor of Larry’s labor, passion, and continued drive on behalf of the wrongfully convicted, a new endowed fund has been created: The Dr. Larry Golden Illinois Innocence Project Fund. Gifts to this fund will help to create scholarships for students working on the Project and help with expenses. Please give.
