Durham | Celebrating the Voices of Justice, True Stories Poetry Reading

07/14/2018 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Celebrating the Voices of Justice

Saturday, July 14 at 3:00 pm
CityWell Church, Durham

You are invited to the Carolina Justice Policy Center’s Summer Fundraiser, featuring original works by local young poets telling true stories from the criminal justice system.

Each poet is paired with a local criminal justice advocate who will tell them about a story from their work that moved them. Criminal justice advocates involved in the event range from death penalty attorneys to public defenders to formerly incarcerated individuals. The event will raise young voices for criminal justice reform. It will delight and challenge and educate its audience. It will raise money that will go towards the fight for the rights of justice involved individuals. And most importantly, it will tell stories that must be told for us to realize what is at stake in criminal justice.

The money raised for the event will help cover the cost of the event as well as raise money for the Carolina Justice Policy Center. The Carolina Justice Policy Center empowers North Carolinians to create effective, equitable, and humane solutions to criminal justice problems. It carries out its mission in various ways. It provides public education on criminal justice issues through a bi-weekly newsletter, presentations, and virtual resources. It also engages in legislative advocacy for criminal justice reform. Finally, it engages in coalition building and community organizing.
We are proud to host this event and share the stories that drive our efforts. We hope that you will join us by being a featured sponsor for Poetic Justice.
