We started off 2015 with an inspiring trip to Atlanta to give presentations and trainings on “participatory defense” to southern state Public Defender Chiefs at the Gideon’s Promise gathering. This army of both young and experienced attorneys are transforming what public defense means in this country as they say, “one lawyer at a time.” We’ve had the great fortune of building with their camp for a couple years now, and are exciting about the new partnerships that are sprouting from our common cause of challenging mass incarceration through movement-building. Here are a few flicks!

Sure we showed some multimedia stuff, but nothing beats explaining new processes like participatory defense than butcher paper and stick figures. Excited to see how these stories grow to life in the South!
