What is the Oregon Innocence Project?
The Oregon Innocence Project (OIP) is a joint project between the Oregon
Justice Resource Center and Metropolitan Public Defender Services whose
mission is to exonerate innocent inmates, educate and train law students,
and actively promote legislative reform aimed at preventing wrongful convictions
against the innocent.
The OIP will be the only program of its nature in Oregon with the sole
mission of tracking inmates' claims of innocence, investigating those
claims, conducting DNA testing and the testing of other such evidence,
and litigating where appropriate.
The OIP is dedicated wholeheartedly to securing the release of wrongfully
convicted inmates and providing an incredible educational experience for
the students who are involved in the Project.
As a passionate attorney who strongly believes in the aims of the Oregon
Innocence Project, Attorney Block was honored to attend the OIP's
Launch Party and Benefit and be selected as an Innocence Champion for
showing his ongoing support to the Project. He hopes to continue involvement
in the future.
