The 2020 Milestones Dinner keynote speaker will be Amanda Knox, exoneree, journalist, and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard. Amanda spent nearly four years between 2007 and 2015 in an Italian prison, and eight years on trial for the murder of her roommate. She was acquitted by the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation in 2015. After being vilified and shamed in international headlines for nearly a decade, Amanda now works to shed light on the issues of wrongful conviction, truth seeking, and public shaming, and to inspire people towards empathy and perspective. We encourage you to preview her Milestones Dinner appearance by watching her powerful interview with Lester Holt on YouTube at

This will be a very special Milestones celebration as we will be celebrating LINC’s twenty years of working to destigmatize persons with a history of incarceration. LINC has successfully demonstrated that reentry programs can turn setbacks into comebacks through education, housing, and counseling. This event is an important opportunity to increase awareness of the positive community impact of LINC’s programs.
