NCIP Mission & Vision


The mission of the Northern California Innocence Project is to promote a fair, effective and compassionate criminal justice system and protect the rights of the innocent.


The Northern California Innocence Project envisions a criminal justice system that makes us safer, is cost-effective, and is fair and equitable. NCIP envisions a criminal justice system that accurately separates the innocent from the guilty and treats all with fairness and compassion. NCIP strives to partner with all stakeholders — from law enforcement to advocates — to ensure that this vision is realized.
