NHS Los Angeles Cordially Invites You to Join Us
for a Presentation and Dinner with:
Exoneree, Criminal Justice Advocate
Author of Waiting to be Heard
Join us on Wednesday, May 31 for a presentation and dinner with Amanda Knox, an exoneree, criminal justice advocate, and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Waiting to be Heard (HarperCollins, April 2013). She spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn't commit. The controversy over Amanda's case made international headlines for nearly a decade, and thrust her into the spotlight, where she was vilified and shamed.
Amanda has transformed that negative energy into advocacy. She now works to spread awareness of wrongful conviction issues and to inspire people towards empathy, determination, forgiveness, and perspective. Her journalism has been published in USA Today, the Seattle Times, Seattle Magazine, and BROADLY, and she writes a column for the West Seattle Herald.
