Fighting for Freedom From the Inside: Celebrating the Advocacy of Jailhouse Lawyers


Add to My Calendar Tuesday, August 17, 2021 5:30pm to 7:00pm


Join the Center for Constitutional Rights for a riveting celebration of the legacy of jailhouse lawyers, who fight for freedom from inside the prison-industrial complex.

We are thrilled to be joined by three groundbreaking prison rights activists and freedom fighters whose activism has transformed the landscape of jailhouse lawyering:

Dee Deidre Farmer -  Pioneering Jailhouse Lawyer and Lead Plaintiff in Farmer v. Brennan
Paul Redd - Noted Jailhouse Lawyer & JLH Contributor
Jenipher Jones Bonino - Lead Counsel, Jailhouse Lawyers Speak International Law Project
& statements from Mumia Abu-Jamal and Sundiata Jawanza

The discussion will be moderated by Center for Constitutional Rights Attorney, Rachel Meeropol.

Register now for access to this important conversation. 

This event is the keystone of our Black August celebration, which honors freedom fighters who are fighting to dismantle the prison-industrial complex, and whose vision, tenacity, and deep love for our communities are leading us toward the horizon of abolition. It also coincides with the publication and distribution of our Sixth Edition of the Jailhouse Lawyers Handbook in conjunction with the National Lawyers Guild

This event is free and open to all. ASL interpretation and live transcription will be provided.
