The experiences of incarceration for people convicted of crimes they did not commit have been given little to no attention in the psychological literature to date. With advances in DNA technology, and a growing movement dedicated to freeing innocent individuals in prison, the numbers of exonerees in our communities is growing annually. This project aims to identify the ways psychologists may be of best service to this community. This investigation will be done though a combination of literature research, participant informed research structure, and interviews with volunteers from the exoneree community.
Your donation will fund research costs, travel expenses, and data analysis software. The fundraising goal of $1500 will cover only a portion of these expenses, so please consider donating above my level of request, as your means allows. The result of this project will function as the initial inquiry into a larger project supporting individuals struggling from their experiences of wrongful conviction.
Every bit counts, single donations of $10 add up quickly! Want another way to give? Please forward this to your friends, organizations, list serves, etc...
