Does Innocence Matter?

Please join us to rally for the wrongfully convicted! Features speakers include: Rodney Lincoln - Missouri Rodney spent 36 years in prison convicted of a murder he did not commit. Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens commuted Rodney's sentence on his last day in office. Rodney was released from prison on June 1, 2018. Christine Lovelace: Illinois In 2014, Christine’s husband Curt, a former Illinois state’s attorney, was charged with the murder of his first wife. After enduring two grueling trials, Curt was finally found not guilty in 2017. Christine and Curt are co-founders of The Justice Initiative – dedicated to assisting the innocent in winning back their freedom. Patrick Pursley – Illinois Patrick spent 23 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. In 2017 his conviction was overturned and he is now awaiting a new trial. While in prison, Patrick founded I AM KID CULTURE, a movement dedicated to empowering urban youth. Additional speakers include victims and supporters of the wrongfully convicted in McLean County.
