Life After Innocence (LAI) hosted a bowling event on Sunday, October 18. We were delighted to welcome several new members of the Illinois Innocence Project! Rebecca and Tyler, both social work students in Chicago, joined us and brought along Alstory Simon and Stanley Rice. We also welcomed new restaurant owner Eric Caine, Marvin Reeves, and LAI alums Emily De Yoe and Margie Kennedy. It was part-time faculty member, Jarrett Adams’s, first bowling experience with LAI— and he did well!
We all enjoy these opportunities to spend time with exonerees so that we can provide a much-needed support system in a relaxed atmosphere. It’s good to be reminded of how important the human element is to our work in a legal clinic like LAI.
