Host a Fundraising Event in Support of IPF

DNA exonerations in Florida and nationwide clearly demonstrate that the criminal justice system is fundamentally flawed and all too often innocent people are wrongfully incarcerated. Raising public awareness of these injustices is a critical component of IPF’s on-going work. You can help free innocent people in Florida’s prison by holding an event in your community to educate your friends and colleagues. If you are interested in hosting an event, check out how to host an IPF house party.
