Panel Discussion: Achieving Racial Equity in North Carolina’s Legal System

November 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

The Western North Carolina Chapter of the ACLU would like to invite you to an exceptional virtual panel discussion on improving racial equity in North Carolina’s legal system on Tuesday, November 16 at 7PM. 

Click here to register for our panel discussion “Achieving Racial Equity in North Carolina’s Legal System.” 

Inspired by the release last year of the report of the Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice (TREC), created by Governor Cooper, the webinar will examine how our legal system disproportionately targets and incarcerates people of color, all too often lacks transparency and accountability, and what we can do to fight back.

Our stellar speakers will include Anita Earls, Associate Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court; N.C. State Senator Mujtaba Mohammed; Dr. Felicia Arriaga, Professor of Sociology at Appalachian State University; and Rob Thomas, Strategic Coordinator at the Racial Justice Coalition. The discussion will be moderated by Henderson Hill, Senior Counsel at the ACLU’s Capital Punishment Project.
