Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Public defender programs are typically underappreciated and underfunded. This session outlines a range of advocacy options with external stakeholders for public defender programs to strenghten their efforts. The options range from assertive efforts to those that are more subtle in nature. This session is intended to provide public defenders in attendance with ideas to implement within their own jurisdictions. Whether in a blue or red state, or a statewide or county program, this session will offer options for public defenders.
