I thought this was worth sharing:

Ohio University, the Center for Law, Justice, & Culture, and the Ohio Innocence Project are hosting a virtual event about wrongful convictions, specifically the role of conviction integrity units in prosecutor's offices on October 7 at 6PM.

Two of the speakers are Ohio Innocence Project exonerees.
