Bruce Fischer is an author and advocate, who became involved with the Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito case in December 2009. He is the founder of Injustice in Perugia, a grassroots organization that worked to correct the injustice committed against Knox and Sollecito in Perugia, Italy. Bruce is the author of “Injustice in Perugia: a book detailing the wrongful conviction of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito” and a follow-up book titled “Finding Justice in Perugia.” Bruce’s work on the Knox/Sollecito case opened his eyes to other wrongful convictions. He realized the problem is far more pervasive than most people realize, and most cases don’t get the attention they warrant. This new-found knowledge led Bruce to expand his efforts, working to develop Injustice Anywhere, an organization working to correct wrongful convictions. Injustice Anywhere currently has seven featured cases and operates a network of websites all working to bring more attention to wrongful convictions. Bruce is currently a co-host on the Snow Files podcast. The podcast discusses the wrongful conviction of Jamie Snow and how they got away with it.
