About Us

The Alaska Innocence Project is an Alaska-based non-profit corporation that provides legal, educational, and charitable services to identify and exonerate individuals who have been wrongfully convicted in the state of Alaska and to provide educational opportunities that foster a culture that champions the defense of the innocent. Prior to its formation, individuals wrongfully convicted in Alaska could turn to the dedicate staff of the Innocence Project Northwest Clinic at the University of Washington School of Law for assistance; however, workload has forced that project to turn down requests from inmates in Alaska. To fill this need, a dedicated group of criminal attorneys, investigators, and concerned individuals banded together to form the Alaska Innocence Project. The AIP is currently staffed by an Executive Director and an intern, and overseen by a 14 member volunteer board of directors.
