Steppin’ Out 2012: Celebration, Dinner & Awards

We want to thank everyone who joined us for our first annual awards celebration dinner. What a memorable evening! The event netted more than $50,000, which will enable IPF to continue its mission of finding and freeing the wrongfully convicted in Florida and helping those who have been released rebuild their lives. We extend a special thank you to our many sponsors.

Some highlights are pictured below.

Eight Florida exonerees were joined by more than 250 friends and supporters celebrating the inspiring lives of these men and honoring those who have worked diligently to advance justice for all.
