The Illinois Innocence Project celebrates its 15-year anniversary

Illinois Innocence ProjectOn April 30, the Illinois Innocence Project (IIP) held their ninth annual Defenders of the Innocent Event at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel, which 423 people attended.
The event is the IIP’s major fundraising event, but since it was the IIP’s 15th anniversary this event was all the more special.
That night, over $100,000 was raised out of the $500,000 that will be needed by the end of 2016 to sustain current operations of IIP for things like DNA testing and other forensic science.
