New Podcast: Carine Williams of the Innocence Project Discusses the Death Penalty, Innocence, and the Function of Freedom’

In the March 2021 edi­tion of Discussions with DPIC, Death Penalty Information Center Senior Director of Research and Special Projects Ngozi Ndulue is joined by Carine Williams — the Chief Program Strategy Officer at the Innocence Project — for a con­ver­sa­tion about inno­cence, the death penal­ty, and the func­tion of free­dom.” Reflecting on the gross mis­car­riage of jus­tice exhib­it­ed in wrong­ful con­vic­tions and exon­er­a­tions, Williams stress­es two crit­i­cal themes: death is irrev­o­ca­ble and end­ing the death penal­ty is sim­ply not enough.
