FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Maddy deLoneExecutive Director
A FAMILY OF ADVOCATES
 With the recent premiere of “Conviction,” a major motion picture that tells the story of a wrongful conviction, hundreds of thousands of new audiences have been introducedto the flaws in the criminal justice system. But the real heart of the story is the bondbetween the wrongfully convicted brother and his sister who puts herself through lawschool to help prove his innocence. It’s a beautiful movie and an inspiring true story about Betty Anne Waters, sister of Innocence Project client Kenny Waters, who wasexonerated through DNA testing. (See “In Their Own Words,” page 12, for a Q and A  with Betty Anne Waters and Hilary Swank, the actor who portrays her in the film.) While Betty Anne’s determination and perseverance to help Kenny was extraordinary,family members play a vital role in both the exoneration and reintegration of many of our clients. They are among our greatest allies, often becoming formidable advocatesfor criminal justice reform. Their work ranges from local grassroots efforts to nationallegal and political battles. This issue of Innocence Project in Print highlights theircontributions to all areas of our work.See “Speaking from the Heart,” page 4, to read about our Exoneree Speakers’ Bureau, which includes not only exonerees, but also family members of the exonerated. Exonereespeakers and their families bring the message of reform to schools, churches, civic groupsand more – often in the very communities where the wrongful conviction occurred.The fight to prove a loved one’s innocence can also take family members’ advocacy to the state and national level. As you’ll read in “Tragedy in Texas” on page 7, the caseof Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in 2005, has made national headlines. Willingham was sentenced to death for the arson murder of his three daughters basedon erroneous, outdated science. Tragically, Willingham’s family lost both the threelittle children and their father; now they have partnered with us in a new effort toclear his name. As family members of the exonerated know, a wrongful conviction can happen toanyone – even a cherished son, beloved mother, or favorite brother. Likewise, anyonecan help improve the system and prevent injustice. Thanks to the good exposure we’ve received through “Conviction,” people are becoming aware of the problemof wrongful convictions more than ever before. And as the word spreads, our family of advocates grows.
