Why Race Matters // April 28
See Something, Say Something: Interrupting Bias and Litigating Race and Trauma in the Courts

Speaker: Kris Henning, Esq.
Thursday April 28, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Developing the skills necessary to raise race in the courtroom is a critical component of your success in litigation. Join the author of Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth, Blume Professor of Law, and the Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Initiative Georgetown Law as she works with us to develop the critical thinking, concrete skills, and tools we need to raise race in the Court. In an engaging and interactive style, Professor Henning will help us understand how racial bias, hyper-surveillance, and the traumatic effects of policing impact all our cases — juvenile, criminal, family court, and mental health cases. Together, we will develop strategies to interrupt the dehumanizing language, attitudes, and legal decisions that harm our clients of color.
