    About the Innocence Project of Minnesota

    The mission of the Innocence Project of Minnesota (IPMN) is to free
    the wrongfully convicted and prevent future wrongful convictions from
    occurring. Since its inception in 2001, IPMN has screened and
    investigated individuals’ credible claims of actual innocence, and
    represented people who were wrongfully convicted or incarcerated for
    crimes they did not commit. IPMN also educates attorneys and other
    criminal justice professionals on best practices, and works to reform
    the criminal justice system to prevent innocent people from going to
    prison.

    preparing and serving appropriate motions and briefs, negotiating with

    the organization, its donors, or grantors
