About the Author

Courtney Lance, the daughter of a civil rights and political organizer, is an audit professional with the real estate firm Draper and Kramer in Chicago. Courtney feels it important that we all honor our creative spirits and does so through her Chicago based non-profit, The Third Place. She has been a regular contributor to Two Tight Shoes, a blog for women, and currently authors A Life Well Fed, a blog exploring and sharing her creative life. She also is a director of Louis’ Groceries, a nonprofit organization that helps the residents of under-served communities in Chicago adopt healthy eating habits. She believes the voices of the wrongfully convicted need to be heard so we all may understand the weaknesses in our justice system, the lack of support services for the exonerated and to witness the strength of the human spirit that has empowered these men and women to remain hopeful during the many years spent in prison for crimes they did not commit.

Nikki Pope is an attorney with the law firm of Cooley, LLP in Northern California where she specializes in securities law and corporate governance. She has been a member of the advisory board of the Northern California Innocence Project since 2005. She is a member of the California Bar Association and the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. She also is a director of Moving Train, Inc., an organization that provides fiscal sponsorship for documentary filmmakers. She is very interested in prison reform and, as a member of her firm’s pro bono practice group, provides free legal services to organizations that work with California prisoners such as the Insight Prison Project, The Last Mile, and the Prison University Project.
