One of the Foundation's leading missions is creating an equal and fair society. By supporting various causes and initiatives, the Foundation helps fight discrimination and inequality, advocating for minorities, giving voice to those who have none, and making sure every person will have an equal opportunity, regardless of gender, race, or religion.
The Innocence Project is a nonprofit legal organization that is committed to exonerating individuals who it claims have been wrongly convicted. By using DNA testing and attempting to reform the criminal justice system, the organization prevents future injustice. The Innocence Project's mission is to "free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment."
