We're on a mission.

The Innocence Project of Texas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to securing the release of those wrongfully convicted of crimes in Texas and educating the public about the causes and effects of wrongful convictions.

Currently there are over 150,000 people in the Texas prison system.  Even at a modest 1% wrongful conviction rate there are over 1,500 men and women behind bars at this very moment who do not belong there. We receive over 100 letters a week requesting our assistance and have over 500 cases in line for investigation.
