The Life After Justice Center is an advocacy organization for those who have been wrongfully convincted. Started by two exonerees, the program seeks to provide services and programs for those who have been released after being wrongfully convicted. From the website: "Exonerees aren’t even afforded the same re-entry services that parolees receive. Despite being innocent, these men and women are typically given nothing more than a pair of clothes and a bus pass when they’re released back onto the streets ... Life After Justice works to right this wrong."
