The innocence project, which aims to help people avoid police misconduct and abuse by focusing on the lives of people in poverty, will be the first of its kind in the United States, and it will launch next month in New Jersey, New York, and Washington, DC.
The idea for the project originated with a young activist named Jordan Davis, who is now a partner in a firm in New Orleans, which was founded to help low-income people with criminal records and civil rights.
Davis said he was inspired by the work of former President Obama and by a number of organizations that help people with mental illness and drug addiction.
Davis told Vice News that he was approached by the Innocence Project, which he said will be a collaborative effort with the city and the community.
He said that the Innos Project will focus on people in poor neighborhoods, and will not have a large focus on police misconduct.
He said that because the project is about poverty, the project will be very non-punitive.
“It’s not about punishing the individual,” Davis said.
“We’re going to give these people a tool that they can use to not just be part of the system, but to be a part of society.”
He said he will also be offering training for those in low-wage jobs.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for them to be able to get a job, learn a job that is not exploitative, and then they can make an investment in themselves,” Davis added.
“I think the people who are most likely to benefit from it are the most vulnerable people, the most marginalized people, and the people with the lowest incomes.
So I think it has a tremendous potential to impact those people the most.”
In a statement, the Innoclip Project said that it plans to offer workshops and other programs aimed at helping people with low-level criminal records, mental illness, and addiction, and to help them learn to be self-reliant and be more independent.
In a letter to the New York Times, the New Jersey Innoclips Project said the project “provides a framework for people with multiple criminal histories and addictions to gain and maintain self-sufficiency and independence.”
The project will also offer grants for community programs, and in some cases will provide housing assistance for people who cannot afford to rent.
Davis said that he believes that this project will help people feel more comfortable about challenging their local law enforcement.
“The only way you’re going a safe way is to be on the outside looking in,” Davis told Vice.
“And the idea of not just being outside but being part of a community, of a movement, is going to really make that difficult.”
The Innoclipp Project hopes to make a dent in the criminal justice system, by focusing its efforts on people who have criminal histories but are unable to afford a lawyer.
