The Innocence Project New York site provides a wealth of information about wrongful conviction in the United States, as well as links to other Innocence Projects. For people seeking general information on wrongful conviction, we highly recommend this website.
The Association in Defence of the Wrongfully Convicted is a public interest organization dedicated to preventing and rectifying wrongful convictions. Founded in 1993 in response to the wrongful conviction of Guy Paul Morin, the original members organized a voluntary non-profit association with two broad objectives: first, to reduce the likelihood of future miscarriages of justice and, second, to review and, where warranted, attempt to overturn wrongful convictions.

The Innocence Network is an affiliation of organisations dedicated to providing pro bono legal and investigative services to individuals seeking to prove innocence of crimes for which they have been convicted and working to redress the causes of wrongful convictions.
