Get Tickets for 2017 Defender of Justice Luncheon with James Forman, Jr.


Please join the Texas Fair Defense Project for our Second Annual Defender of Justice Luncheon. We’re excited to have James Forman Jr. as our keynote speaker. Mr. Forman, a professor at Yale Law School, will discuss his new book, Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and a Washington Post bestseller. Listen to him on NPR’s Fresh Air.

Watch Representative Gina Hinojosa explain why she supports TFDP and wants you to join her.

We will honor the Austin Justice Coalition, a Black-led group of activists that works to improve the quality of life for Black Austinites, who are historically and systematically impacted by gentrification, segregation, over-policing, and a dearth of educational and employment opportunities. We will also hear from a former client and advocate for criminal justice reform who will share her personal story. And one of our talented supporters, Lucy Wood, has generously donated high-quality prints of her beautiful painting in the image above. We will raffle a framed, signed print at the event, and we will also have the limited-edition posters for sale for $50.
