For 16 years, the Northern California Innocence Project (NCIP) has been working tirelessly on behalf of the wrongfully convicted by promoting a fair, effective, and compassionate criminal justice system and protecting the rights of the innocent. Since our founding in 2001, we have cleared the names of 23 innocent people who collectively have served more than 297 years in prison. To make this work possible, we work for years – and sometimes decades – on our cases. This work is not possible without community support.
The Justice for All Awards Dinner is our largest fundraising event of the year and critical to NCIP’s sustainability. At the dinner we thank key supporters and celebrate the accomplishments of the exonerees they have helped to free. Each year, approximately 300 business, civic, and legal community leaders from the San Francisco Bay Area join us at the dinner, which is regarded as one of the premier legal fundraisers in Northern California.
This year’s dinner will be held at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco on April 12, 2018. Honorees include Natasha Minsker, Center Director for the ACLU of California Center for Advocacy, and Jarret Adams, exoneree and attorney.
