BURIED ALIVE PROJECT

BURIED ALIVE PROJECT

Founded by SMU Law alumna, Brittany Barnett, and incubated at the Deason Center, the Buried Alive Project seeks to eliminate life without parole sentences for non-violent federal drug offenders. Though clemency petitions and federal post-conviction litigation, the Buried Alive Project has rescued dozens of people who might otherwise have died behind bars.
