Join the movement!


The purpose of XONR8 is to create interest and awareness about wrongful convictions in the legal community.  Wrongful convictions happen in every community across the world. The California Innocence Project is based at California Western School of Law, thus it has the ability to gather students, professors, and lawyers to teach and learn about the causes of wrongful convictions. XONR8 does this through the use of speakers, class sessions taught by practicing attorneys, and field trips to various places involved in the criminal justice process.


XONR8 officers organize and arrange several events throughout the year. Examples of typical events might be a screening of a film focused on wrongful convictions followed by a discussion, an educational seminar, or a debate on the death penalty where attendees hear from individuals involved in the death penalty process. XONR8 also organizes networking events for students, lawyers, and other individuals who are interested in criminal justice reform and wrongful convictions.
