Thank you for everyone who attended the 2023 Justice for All Gala on Thursday, October 5, 2023, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco!
2023 Justice For All Honorees
Cookie Ridolfi Freedom Award Recipient
In 1999, Jeremy Puckett was implicated in a murder that happened the previous year and, in 2002, was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. In 2020, he was exonerated and walked out a free man just as the pandemic hit. Throughout his nearly two decade journey to freedom, Puckett has shown incredible resilience, courageousness and perseverance in challenging his wrongful conviction.

2023 Justice For All Sponsors
Last year, on October 6, 2022, an enthusiastic crowd of 250 people joined NCIP at the Justice For All Gala, the first in-person gala NCIP had held in more than three years. Since NCIP’s last in-person gala in 2019, NCIP helped to free 11 innocent people who had not yet had the opportunity to be celebrated as part of the community.
