DYNAMIC CAPITAL DEFENSE THROUGH A RACIAL JUSTICE LENS – Training Series
Federal Death Penalty Resource Project
Winter/Spring 2021

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced   - James Baldwin 

In our community’s ongoing effort to harness the momentum of the evolving acknowledgment of the role of race in our lives, our clients’ lives, and our communities and society as a whole, the Federal Death Penalty Resource Counsel Project, in collaboration with the National Defense Race and Ethnicity Task Force and the National Mitigation Coordinator, has designed a four-part online training series to address selected strategic issues through a racial justice lens.

The programs offered include presentations, panel discussions, workshops, small group breakout sessions, and multimedia opportunities.   Each Part’s programs will build on sessions from the previous Part.
