We wish Amy the best of luck and thank her for hard work and dedication, and welcome Lisa to the IPF team.
Executive Director Seth Miller provides an update on Steppin’ Out with the Innocence Project of Florida, our recent celebration and fundraising event in Miami, Florida. Steppin’ Out was attended by eight men who have been released after decades of wrongful imprisonment along with 250 friends and supporters.
During the evening the Talbot “Sandy” D’Alemberte Commitment to Justice Award was to presented to Holland & Knight LLP, and the Frank Lee Smith Innocence Award went to Martin “Marty” McClain, Esq. The event netted more than $50,000, which will enable IPF to continue to find and free innocent people in Florida prisons and help them rebuild their lives.
Special thanks to our sponsors, artists who supported the silent auction and all who attended. Additional highlights can be see here.
We hope you’ll Step Out with the Innocence Project of Florida in 2013.
