Bruce Fischer

Co-Host

Bruce Fischer is an author and an advocate for the wrongfully convicted. He is the co-founder of Injustice Anywhere, an organization working to correct wrongful convictions. Bruce’s advocacy efforts began in 2009 when he founded Injustice in Perugia, a grassroots organization that worked to correct the injustice committed against Knox and Sollecito in Perugia, Italy. Bruce has authored two books detailing the case. His work on the Knox/Sollecito case opened his eyes to other wrongful convictions, and he quickly realized the problem is far more pervasive than most people realize, and most cases don’t get the attention they warrant. Bruce's newfound knowledge led to the creation of Injustice Anywhere in 2011.
