In 1981, William Dillon was convicted for a murder he did not commit. He spent 27 years in jail until DNA evidence positively identified the two guilty perpetrators. His story is not unique. Mr. Dillon performs in the band Exoneree which is made up of musicians who have been wrongly convicted and freed through the Innocence Project. Their story is a powerful reminder of the responsibility we face in administering justice in America. Exoneree brings together musicians from several states to tell their moving stories in song.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
