Description

The Pennsylvania Innocence Project (PaIP) seeks a strong, farsighted leader to serve as its Executive Director and lead this successful, highly-regarded organization to the next level. The Executive Director will be the organization’s chief executive, lead fundraiser, chief spokesperson, and primary advocate. They will provide energetic, passionate, and optimistic leadership to a strong and committed staff and an engaged Board, championing the organization’s ambitious
plan for growth.

About Pennsylvania Innocence Project

The Pennsylvania Innocence Project was founded in 2008 to exonerate persons convicted of crimes they did not commit and to prevent the innocent from being convicted. PaIP is viewed as a leader among innocence organizations, having achieved 20 exonerations through both DNA and non-DNA evidence since its founding, as well as the release of 4 clients still fighting to prove their innocence. 

PaIP also engages in policy and advocacy work to increase access to the courts for the wrongly convicted and to prevent wrongful convictions from occurring. PaIP has an active friend of the court practice, filing briefs in state and federal appellate courts on issues that affect the convicted innocent. PaIP also takes seriously its commitment to education—providing education to the general public as well as to those within the criminal justice system on how wrongful convictions happen, how to prevent them, and how to handle post-conviction litigation. PaIP particularly prides itself on educating the next generation, working with every law school and many colleges and universities in Pennsylvania to provide clinical programs and internships to law students, MSW candidates, and undergraduates. Finally, recognizing that the trauma of a wrongful conviction does not end with release from prison, PaIP provides reentry support for its clients and other exonerated Pennsylvanians.
