#Mo Innocence

The #MoInnocence Campaign is focused on bringing attention to the problem of wrongful convictions and unjust imprisonments in the criminal justice system. It challenges the idea that these cases are rare and the system is generally fair. The campaign uses data and individual stories to show that wrongful convictions are a serious issue and that many innocent people have lost years of their lives because of it.

In 2022, 134 people died inside Missouri Department of Corrections facilities, primarily because of overdoses and medical neglect, according to data collected by Missouri Prison Reform.
