OUR STORY

The Bridge of Hope Innocence Initiative at RMIT is an exciting collaboration between staff, students and industry. The initiative aims to examine cases where a person may have been wrongfully convicted, and assist in exonerating that person if there is evidence of a wrongful conviction

The Bridge of Hope Innocence Initiative at RMIT is a joint venture between RMIT University and The Bridge of Hope Foundation. The Initiative follows the work of others in the innocence movement who aim to both investigate claims of wrongful conviction and campaign for reform of issues that lead to these injustices.

Established in 2001, The Bridge of Hope Foundation Inc is a registered not-for-profit, social justice charity with Deductible Gift Recipient taxation status. The principal activities of the Bridge of Hope Foundation centre upon matters of social justice, the implementation of justice reinvestment policies and the provision of both the emotional and physical tools required to assist in turning disadvantaged lives around.
