Please join the Southern Center for Human Rights for our 2019 Decriminalizing Race & Poverty Symposium, exploring the impact of the criminalization of race and poverty and ways to end these policies and practices. This year, we are excited to present three small group workshops focused on court watching, strategies to hold elected officials accountable, and storytelling. Panels will explore building effective criminal justice reform campaigns and the media's role in ending mass incarceration.

A live stream will be available for those unable to attend in person. The live stream will start at 12:00 PM with an opening address from Cassy Stubbs, the Director of the ACLU Capital Punishment Project. We will send an e-mail on Monday, September 9th with the link to access the live stream. It will also be posted on the front page of our website.

For additional event information and sponsorship opportunities, contact Deputy Director Terrica Ganzy by email at [email protected] or call (404) 688-1202.

This event has been approved for 6 CLE credit hours. Attendees participating only through live stream can receive up to 4 CLE credit hours.
