Griffith College is home to the Irish Innocence Project

The Irish Innocence Project - Donate and Help Challenge Wrongful Convictions

The Irish Innocence Project has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for its work. As part of this campaign we hope to raise funds for the inaugural Irish Innocence Project International Conference On Wrongful Convictions, Human Rights And Student Experience, and the Wrongful Convictions Film Festival will both take place at Griffith College in Dublin on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th June 2015.

The conference and film festival will be the first of their kind. This is your chance to contribute to challenging wrongful convictions and raising awareness of this important issue. If it is possible for you to donate a small amount we urge you to do so and to join our campaign, Be The Key: Set An Innocent Free. You can be the key!
