Obie Anthony


Obie Anthony was wrongfully incarcerated in California for 17 years for a murder he did not commit. After his exoneration in 2011, Obie had to learn how to build a new life outside of prison. He struggled with employment, PTSD and reestablishing relationships with his family. In 2015 he founded Exonerated Nation to help make sure other exonerees didn’t have to face these challenges alone. Exonerated Nation is non-profit based in Oakland that currently serves California exonerees and aims to expand their services to reach exonerees across the nation.
