Life After Innocence (LAI) hosted its quarterly bowling event on Sunday, February 28. We were excited to see new and old faces as former and current student members joined in on the fun. We welcomed our new adjunct professor, Megan Fahey, and new student director, Alejandra Barcenas, who got the bowl rolling by making all of the exonerees feel at home. We also welcomed our two new clients, Mario Casciaro and Sean Whirl, who attended the event and had the chance to meet our other clients and to share their stories. Exoneree Juan Rivera brought the newest addition to his family, baby daughter Ahnalia Estrellita, and shared stories of his daily sunrise viewings.
Director and founder Laura Caldwell was inspired by the event and even drafted a copy of her chapter to be included in her new collaboration, Anatomy of Innocence. As always, we enjoyed the opportunity to be with our exonerees and to support them by having a little fun while learning from and teaching each other. We look forward to doing this again in the future and are so pleased to welcome all of our new student members, our new leaders, and our new exonerees.
