Live music, an auction and an opportunity to learn from two wrongfully convicted people will all be happening at the Justice Jam.

The fundraiser, hosted by attorney Frank Neuner and his wife Tracy Neuner on May 26 at Warehouse 535, will benefit Innocence Project New Orleans, a nonprofit dedicated to helping wrongfully convicted people in Louisiana and those serving unjust sentences.

Lafayette musicians Louis Michot and Corey Ledet and New Orleans musician Leyla McCalla will play as part of the jam. There also will be a live and silent auction, open bar and hors d’oeuvres from La Pizzeria.

Musician Corey Ledet will be playing at Justice Jam, a fundraiser benefiting Innocence Project New Orleans.

Three people who were wrongfully convicted and freed because of the work by the Innocence Project New Orleans will share their experiences, including some of the difficulties they faced once they returned home.

“It’s going to be a real fun night. There’s something for everyone,” said Innocent Project New Orleans Executive Director Jee Park.
