The Death Penalty Information Center

Founded in 1990, the nonprofit Death Penalty Information Center is a national nonprofit organization that provides up-to-date analysis and information on issues concerning capital punishment. It is the go-to source for facts and figures about the death penalty.

The Innocence Project

The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck at Cardozo School of Law, exonerates the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reforms the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

The National Registry of Exonerations

The registry, founded in 2012, is a project of the Newkirk Center for Science & Society at University of California Irvine, University of Michigan Law School, and Michigan State University College of Law. It collects, analyzes, and disseminates information about all known exonerations of innocent criminal defendants in the United States from 1989 to the present. The registry states on its website that, “ We rely entirely on publicly available information. We do not practice law or investigate cases of possible innocence.”


Founded in 2002, SCOTUSblog covers the US Supreme Court. It reports on every merits case before and after argument and after the decision.

The California Dept of Corrections & Rehabilitation

The website, published and maintained by California, provides information about each of the state’s penal institutions, including current census figures, changes in rules and regulations, and visitor scheduling. Its death row information includes the names, ages, ethnicity, and date of crime and sentencing of the condemned men and women.
