This meeting is by invitation only.

This session will unpack what chief defenders can do about the intersection of race, poverty, and the Sixth Amendment! The Sixth Amendment outlines a set of safeguards for people who are accused of crimes and brought to court. These rights help ensure fair trials and accurate verdicts. However, many of the rights are not fully realized in today’s courts. This session will help defenders lead on advancing these rights and discuss how the intersection of race and poverty plays a role in shaping the realities in the courtroom.

This training is being funded by U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance.
