Defending Communities in Service: Building Defender Program Capacity through National Service

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us to learn more about NLADA’s groundbreaking AmeriCorps VISTA program, Defending Communities in Service. This program, for the first time ever, places AmeriCorps VISTA members in public defender offices across the country to build capacity. With support from the Corporation for National and Community Service, this program is poised to invest as much as $5 million in indigent defense over its first three years in action. As NLADA continues this journey, we want your feedback on how you think that National Service could serve the needs of your office and your community. Participants will hear about the impact that our first wave of AmeriCorps VISTA members have had on the communities where they served, gain a greater understanding of how DCS-VISTA will continue to support public defender offices across the country, and have the opportunity to help shape the next generation of National Service programs initiated by NLADA. Come. Share. Break Ground with Us.
