Innocence Club UW (ICUW)
IC x UW is a student run organization influenced by the “Innocence Canada Foundation". This non profit organization is made up of pro bono lawyers with a mission to exonerate the wrongly convicted, as well as reform the criminal justice system to prevent future injustices in Canada. The purpose of this club is to create an environment where members are welcome to discuss the systemic inequalities that are taking place in our criminal justice system and take action to reform this ongoing situation through fundraising and social awareness. Our club will do so by hosting seminars with criminal defence lawyers in the KW area, as well as run fundraisers that will donate its proceeds to Innocence Canada. The money raised will support both the exonerees and their financial needs, as well as the organization as a whole. ICUW is open to anyone interested in law and activism.Learn more
