Fundraiser for The Georgia Innocence Project
The GEORGIA INNOCENCE PROJECT (GIP)  is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals who have been convicted of crimes they did not commit. The Project works to secure post-conviction DNA testing for Georgia and Alabama inmates where DNA analysis could prove guilt or innocence and adequate DNA testing was not available at trial.

See some of Atlanta's top actors come together for a one night event to raise monies for the Georgia Innocence Project.  Watch "The Exonerated" live on stage on Monday, June 1st.  
Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts and case files"The Exonerated" tells the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words. Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen.  Directed by Susan G. Reid and starring (in alphabetical order):
