Empower Your Jury by Empowering Your Community (The Juror Project) 

April 3, 2018, 2:00 p.m. Eastern, 90 minutes

Webinar Faculty:  William C. Snowden

About the Webinar:  Our juries lack diversity. Not just diversity of color, but also diversity of thought, experience, and socioeconomic background. It is time for that to change. As public defenders we attend trainings on how to voir dire on race with an eye towards having a more diverse jury. But, who is speaking with our communities, our potential jurors, about the process of jury selection and service? This webinar will get into the background and history of The Juror Project, insight into how you should be thinking about community partnerships, and a presentation overview.

About the Faculty: 

As a felony trial attorney, William witnesses the discriminatory practices removing jurors from the jury panel. In response to these practices, William created The Juror Project—an initiative aiming to increase the diversity of jury panels while improving people’s perspective of jury duty. The Juror Project engages the community through informative meetings and group discussions. Additionally, William works as a supervising attorney at the Orleans Public Defenders and has been there since 2013. Please visit www.thejurorproject.org for more information.
