Justice Reform Happy Hour III!
Passionate about criminal justice reform? Justice Forward Virginia has the event for you! On Tuesday, September 19, 2017 from 5pm-7pm, join Justice Forward (and co-sponsor Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers) for its third Justice Reform Happy Hour, at French Quarter Brasserie in Old Town Fairfax City.
Senator Scott Surovell, Professor Jonathan Shapiro, and Peter Greenspun will be joining us to discuss why criminal justice reform -- particularly to Virginia’s discovery rules -- is such a pressing issue and how defense attorneys and others passionate about reform can help level the playing field in Virginia. That’s not just the focus of the event -- it’s our goal as an organization, to unify and mobilize the many allies of reform so our voices are heard in Richmond. We need your help!
WHAT: Justice Reform Happy Hour, co-sponsored by Justice Forward Virginia and VACDL
WHEN: Tuesday, September 19, 2017 from 5:00- 7:00pm
WHERE: French Quarter Brasserie, 3950 University Drive, Fairfax, Virginia 22030
In addition to hearing from our featured guests, Justice Forward will be discussing its goals for the upcoming months, including a joint "lobby day" with other CJR organizations, and plans to organize a consistent volunteer advocacy presence during the next General Assembly session. And if you can't attend, please add your name to our contact list so we can keep you updated about opportunities to be involved.
