We are proud to be a partner in the DC Compassionate Release Project, which has brought together hundreds of attorneys to provide representation to prisoners who are terminally ill, have a disabling condition, are of advanced age, or have other special circumstances to seek compassionate release. This work has been critical amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join us this Thursday, February 4th, at 5:00PM as we celebrate the lives returned to freedom and the incredible advocacy done by the DC Compassionate Release Project volunteers. Hear from the attorneys involved in these life-saving cases on how the work has impacted them as well as their clients.
“Dr. King said, ‘the moral arc of the universe bends toward justice.’ But only when people pull it toward justice. The Washington Lawyers’ Committee is doing the pulling, and our city and the nation are better for it.”
