After Innocence tells the dramatic and compelling story of the exonerated– innocent men wrongly imprisoned for decades and then released after DNA evidence proved their innocence.
Guest Speaker: Aaron Owens, exoneree- convicted of two counts of 1st degree murder in 1973, but released in 1982 as a wrongful conviction.
Learn more about SAFE California– Prop 34. SAFE California will replace California’s death penalty with a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole as the maximum punishment for murder. This means convicted killers will remain behind bars forever – with no risk of executing an innocent person. Additionally, the SAFE California Fund* takes $30 million a year for three years in budget savings and puts it into the investigation of unsolved rape and murder cases
It’s time to replace the death penalty in California!
