The Alaska Innocence Project (AKIP) was founded by criminal justice attorneys, investigators, and advocates to assist justice-impacted individuals in Alaska. They are a non-profit organization that provides legal counsel, educational training, and charitable services. Staff and volunteers work to find and exonerate wrongfully convicted individuals in the state of Alaska, and to offer educational services that build a culture that ensures the defense of the innocent. Incarcerated individuals or their advocates may submit a case for consideration. All correspondence must be in writing, as AKIP cannot discuss case information over the phone under any circumstance. Individuals can find contact information and requirements to submit a case on the AKIP website.
