The power of voices in unison; only the wrongfully convicted can speak authentically for their experience. What an awesome chorus.

Sooooo he didn’t get the compensation talking points then? Or any basics re: wrongful convictions? And he didn’t say, do any research?

Huge news! Thank you Gov. Cuomo for signing this bill that will likely decrease wrongful convictions and bring parity for criminal defendants. The Blindfold Bill is repealed!!

If you want a job at DOJ overseeing enforcement of civil rights laws, you must acknowledge Brown v. Board was correctly decided. Yesterday, Deputy AG nominee Rosen refused to answer . Even AG Barr, no friend of the civil rights community, was willing to say: "Yes."

Take a peek at what happened last year in the world of wrongful convictions: 86 freed and a significant number involved official misconduct.

Ahhhh, one of my favorite parts of being an attorney at was attending the yearly conference and I will miss it. Someone please squeeze my former clients Perry Lott and Philip and Nathan Barnett as they attend their first conference!

What?! Rosen would be second highest ranking official at DOJ and heading Department's day to day operations. This includes the Civil Rights Division, which still has school desegregation cases on its docket. This is disqualifying.

May seem to be a woman obsessed right now, but there is a real erosion of the foundational principals undergirding racial equity happening right now in culture and practice.

Much gratitude to & for testifying at today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on rise in white nationalism. Addressing this epidemic must be top national priority. Given GOP witness statements, you deserve special thanks.
