Organization Information

Mission Statement

Families of the Wrongfully Convicted (FFWC) is a grassroots advocacy effort to raise public awareness about incidences of wrongful convictions, the plight of families of those who are currently incarcerated, and to provide support to men and women who have been paroled and those exonerated.

Description

Families and Friends of the Wrongfully Convicted works primarily with individuals who assert that they were convicted by some failure of the criminal justice system for offenses they did not commit. The families and friends of those individuals also receive both financial and emotional support from FFWC. Additionally, the organization works with other nonprofits to help overturn convictions, lead non-violence workshops in the community, and serve folks living in public housing with various needs.
