Community Ambassador Program

NCIP’s Community Ambassador Program makes volunteering more accessible for those interested in making a difference. This is your chance to use your voice in bringing awareness to the causes and consequences of wrongful convictions by sharing your knowledge about NCIP with your community. By signing up for this activity, you will have access to a toolkit that provides social media posts and prints to hand out. Stay up-to-date on what you can do to spread the word!

As an NCIP Community Ambassador, your commitment will be to:

  • Engage yourself in learning more about NCIP, the innocence movement, and the criminal legal system.
  • Empower others in your community to take action.
  • Transform beliefs and understanding of wrongful convictions in your community.

How to sign up

Policy Advocacy

The California Innocence Coalition is made up of the three innocence organizations located in California (Northern CA Innocence Project, Loyola Project for the Innocent, and CA Innocence Project). Signing up for this volunteer activity will give you access to toolkits that will help you to advocate for CIC’s current legislative reform efforts. Stay up-to-date and learn what you can do to help CIC reform the system.
