You are invited to join us for our first annual Virtual Summit on Race and Justice in South Carolina to be held October 12th through the 15th. This event is designed to bring a broader awareness to the issues that continue to face the criminal justice system in South Carolina. This will be a FREE virtual event, and registration is now open.
In this time of COVID-19, we are working to broadcast a virtual summit designed to bring a broader awareness to the issues that continue to face the criminal justice system in South Carolina. Racial disparities are pervasive and much of our work focuses on identifying and addressing these disparities in our clients’ individual cases and the system as a whole. Without facing racial inequities, we cannot have a fair and just system.
This October, our goal is to host a virtual forum where scholars and activists can share information about the legacy of racial bias in the criminal justice system and its lasting effects, followed by important discussions about actions that can lead to real change.
Session Topics will include but not be limited to:
• The Death Penalty and the Legacy of Lynching and Racial Disparity in South Carolina
• Juvenile sentencing – school to prison pipeline and death-in-prison sentencing for children
• Criminal Justice Reform in South Carolina and How to Advocate for Real Change
• A Panel Discussion on Criminal Justice – Racial disparity, policing, reentry issues, etc.
This is a FREE event but we are accepting donations and sponsorships. All donations will go to support and continue our mission to promote fairness, reliability, and transparency in the criminal justice system for individuals facing the death penalty and juveniles facing life-in-prison sentencing. Please consider supporting the important work of Justice 360 and give the gift of justice today.
