Justice for Illinois Wrongfully Convicted (JIWC) is hosting their 3rd annual Freedom Ride for Justice this Saturday in Springfield Illinois. The event raises money to support the outstanding efforts of JIWC.
JIWC works to educate the public about the criminal justice system in Illinois, while advocating for those who have been wrongfully convicted in the state. JIWC currently supports these cases of wrongful conviction: Jamie Snow, Denny Petitt, Patrick Pursley, Andrew DuBois, and Barton McNeil.
Please come out on Saturday October 17, 2015 to support this important cause!
