The annual Innocence Network Conference is a national event that brings together members of the innocence movement and others for two days of powerful plenary and breakout sessions. The conference is always a special gathering, but 2018 was all the more significant as we met in Memphis during the 50th anniversary year of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The theme of this year’s conference was Race and Wrongful Convictions, and the conference featured a host of educational sessions that addressed the historic fight for civil rights and our movement’s fight for justice for the innocent today. We were also pleased to have Jeffery Robinson, Deputy Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union and Director of the Trone Center for Justice and Equality, as our keynote speaker.
