REVOLUTION FROM WITHIN: WHAT DOES A PUBLIC DEFENDER DO?
Featuring panelists Wesley Caines (Deputy Executive Director, The Bronx Defenders) and Nicole Velazquez (Deputy Director, Family Defense Practice, The Bronx Defenders).
Join us for an in-depth discussion about the work that The Bronx Defenders do in the Bronx community, how the Family Defense Practice pursues justice for families, and the policy and legislative changes (Family Miranda Rights and Informed Consent) that they are advocating for and how we can get involved.
The Bronx Defenders is a public defender nonprofit that is radically transforming how low-income people in the Bronx are represented in the justice system and, in doing so, is transforming the system itself. More about the Family Defense Practice here.
