This spring, Lorenzo was able to attend the Innocence Network Conference in person for the first time! Having heard about the conference every year while still incarcerated for his wrongful conviction, it was especially meaningful for him to take part this year as a speaker and exoneree.
Here are some photographs from the March 2018 conference in Memphis, Tennessee:
