Innocence Project New Orleans Fundraiser & Open House

The Innocence Project New Orleans is having a fundraiser & open house on Friday, November 22nd.

From their website:

"IPNO will honor the creators, cast and crew of HBO's Treme – and the light it shone on New Orleans very flawed criminal justice system 

David Simon, Eric Overmyer, George Pelecanos, additional special guests from Treme + exonerees and their loved ones


We will also celebrate IPNO’s work; the courage and perseverance of our clients and the commitment & support of all those who have joined the fight to right wrongful convictions.

Tickets are $50 in advance (includes drink tickets and appetizers) or $65 at the door."

I have donated a beaded etched copper cuff bracelet & matching earrings and a pair of sterling silver earrings for the fundraiser auction.  Please send positive vibes that these items raise as much money as possible for such an honorable organization.  Their work changes lives that have been ripped apart by a corrupt criminal justice system.  It may surprise many readers to learn that Louisiana and Mississippi have the highest incarceration rates in the world.

    1. Thanks so much, Gale. I thought you'd like it if I used some of those beads in the donation so that you could be a part of it, too.
