Hi Reddit! We are three lawyers (and an unpaid intern) from the California Innocence Project walking from San Diego to Sacramento to deliver clemency petitions to Governor Brown and raise awareness about wrongful convictions. Ask Us Anything!
The Innocence March began on April 27th in San Diego and is set to end on June 20th in Sacramento. We are marching to raise awareness of the California 12, inmates who have strong, compelling evidence of factual innocence. We are delivering clemency petitions to Governor Brown in hopes that he uses his power to release these innocent inmates. A picture of us walking through Oxnard reached the front page yesterday.
Read about the 12 cases at innocencemarch.org.
The marchers are:
Alissa Bjerkhoel - Staff Attorney at the California Innocence Project Mike Semanchik - Staff Attorney at the California Innocence Project Justin Brooks - Director of the California Innocence Project
And Zack Brooks, the unpaid intern who showed us what reddit is (Sweaty_Ball_Zack) Ask us anything!
EDIT we are going to bed now, any questions you still have we will try and answer in the morning. Thanks for the great AMA, and once again, the (unpaid but well taken care of) intern is my son!
