ABOUT

ANTHONY GRAVES

The Anthony Graves Foundation is named after Anthony Graves, a man who served 18 ½ years in prison for a murder he did not commit. The Foundation is committed to bringing meaningful criminal justice reform across the nation. While our interests are national, our focus remains on Texas, due to the sheer numbers imprisoned and with the death penalty being more often prescribed that anywhere in the U.S., the stakes for wrongfully convicted men and women couldn’t be any higher. The Humane Investigation Project (HIP) stands at the forefront of the Anthony Graves Foundation’s fight, with a concerted effort by attorneys and investigators to work through the justice system to free the wrongfully convicted.

While that remains the focus, we seek to do even more. The C.H.O.I.C.E.S. initiative (Changing Hurtful Options Into Choices Ensuring Success) will work with women in need of direction and counseling resulting from traumatic changes in their lives. This includes, but is not limited to, women transitioning from incarceration, women who are victims of abuse, and women overwhelmed by the daily issues of life. The latest initiative, The Speakers Bureau, will train exonerees to use the power of their own voice to affect change in the system.
