Prosecutors, Power, and Racial Justice: Building an Anti-Racist Prosecutorial System
Friday, February 26, 2021, 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM
The Rutgers University Law Review, in collaboration with the Rutgers Center on Criminal Justice, Youth Rights, and Race led by Laura Cohen invites you to join its annual symposium titled Prosecutors, Power, and Racial Justice: Building an Anti-Racist Prosecutorial System. The symposium will be a 4-part series discussing the power of prosecutors to perpetuate or upend the status quo of racial injustice in our criminal and juvenile legal systems. As Defenders, this symposium offers the opportunity to see how the "other side" works and hopefully make take steps toward our work in promoting an anti-racist and fair criminal justice system.
The opening date will be February 26, 2021 at 3:00pm - 5:00pm EST and will feature speaker, Angela J. Davis, author of Policing the Black Man: Prosecution and Imprisonment, who will discuss how prosecutors have contributed to racial injustice in the criminal legal system and how they might repair the damage they've caused!
