Anthony Graves


Anthony Graves is a criminal justice reform advocate and the founder of the Peer Navigator Project. Anthony’s own experience of being wrongfully convicted and spending 18 1/2 years on death row in Texas inspired him to create this innovative program, which trains formerly incarcerated individuals to become peer navigators and help others through the criminal justice system. During his time on death row, Anthony witnessed over 400 executions and received two execution dates himself before being exonerated in 2010. Since his release, Anthony has become a sought-after speaker and expert on criminal justice reform, working tirelessly to improve the system and prevent others from experiencing the same injustice he did.
