On June 30, 2021 at 12:30 pm, the NC Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System (NC CRED), the ACLU of North Carolina, and the Center for Death Penalty Litigation will co-sponsor a webinar focusing on the historic role of white elites, including judges and lawyers, in the movement to construct Confederate iconography across North Carolina and usher in Jim Crow-era policies. We will also discuss the importance of engaging lawyers in today’s Confederate monument removal efforts.
The NC Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System (NC CRED) and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law are co-sponsoring a webinar on Tuesday April 20th from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to review the law and how communities can continue to advocate for the removal of monuments to white supremacy. NC CRED recently launched a campaign to support and educate North Carolinians seeking to remove confederate monuments from courthouse squares in their communities. The goal is the removal of such monuments and other iconography of hatred from all court spaces.
NC-CRED to Co-sponsor Spotlight Conference: “Criminal Justice Debt: Punishing the Poor in North Carolina.” Please join us for this important discussion on ways to reform the criminal justice debt trap. Agenda and registration will be available soon.
