Join us for a very special evening to support the Project!

We are thrilled to welcome Amanda Knox
as our special guest for our first livestream fundraiser.

Amanda was 20 years old and studying abroad in Perugia, Italy, when she was wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for murdering her roommate. Her legal nightmare lasted nearly a decade until she was fully exonerated, putting an end to a case that had made international headlines and thrust Amanda into the spotlight, where she was vilified and shamed.

Your Support of This Event Matters!

This livestream event is one way we hope to replace some of the critical operating funds usually raised at our annual Defenders of the Innocent Event, cancelled this year due to COVID.

The Project provides all advocacy and legal services at no cost to our clients. Your registration and sponsorship of “Guilty Until Proven Innocent” will help us continue the work required to exonerate the wrongfully convicted, such as investigation, expert analysis and DNA testing.

How the Event Will Work

On the morning of the event, we will email you a link to the livestream. All you will have to do is click the link, sit back and enjoy the event. You will not need to download any special program; all you will need is your web browser.

The first 50 sponsors will receive – in a separate email on the morning of the event – a Zoom link to access the private gathering with Amanda Knox after the event.
