Additional Details

We already have a template, we mainly need help re-writing/re-structuring some areas.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a template, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have um, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our Mission

The Midwest Innocence Project (MIP) is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the investigation, litigation, and exoneration of wrongfully convicted men and women in our five-state region, including Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Iowa. We work to free the wrongfully convicted, educate the public, and change policy to prevent future wrongful convictions.

What We Do

We represent people convicted of crimes they did not commit, investigate, and litigate to regain their freedom. We also work to enact policy to prevent wrongful convictions on the front end.
