NAPD Racial Justice Conference
Nov 3-5, 2021
(starting at 1pm on the 3rd and ending at noon on the 5th)

Renaissance Montgomery Hotel

NAPD's Racial Justice Conference will include visits to the Equal Justice Initiative the new Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice.

This year, NAPD’s Racial Justice Conference challenges public defenders to consider three areas that impact their pursuit of justice for clients of color:
1. How they as individuals approach race;
2. How public defender offices address race in their workplaces; and
3: How to effectively litigate racial issues.

Plenary, breakouts and small group sessions will provide opportunities to discuss and address fears about speaking candidly about race, racial considerations (the) in our court rooms, over criminalization, 4th Amendment issues, use of experts, bail and pretrial release, office culture and more.

***NAPD doesn't apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.
We are able to provide CLE for dozens of recorded sessions from previous training for NAPD members in most states.   These sessions are only $10 per credit hour.   For more details, log in with your NAPD credentials at this link.
