During his five years as a public defender in New Orleans, Will Snowden
noticed how the lack of diversity of jury panels contributed to a lack of fairness in the criminal legal system. This led him to create The Juror Project, a non-profit which aims to increase diversity of jury panels as well as improve people’s perspective of jury duty. Join Will to learn about The Juror Project, his transition from public defender to systems reformer, and his efforts to improve criminal justice systems in the South by strengthening relationships between government entities and community organizations.
Take-away lunch will be provided at the end of the program.
