On Monday, we welcomed the New School’s Institute for Retired Professionals, a leader in the field of peer to peer and life-long learning, to Waterside’s Lewis Davis Pavilion.
We were honored to have this first collaboration feature Rebecca Brown, Director of Policy for The Innocence Project.
Rebecca spoke in moving terms about the goals and successes of the non-profit. The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck at Cardozo School of Law, exonerates the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reforms the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
Her talk, as anticipated, was timely, engaging and thought provoking.
A reception for Ms. Brown followed, where guests were able to continue the conversation with her and their fellow attendees.
