Drinks and Diversity – June 2024

June 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for Drinks and Diversity on Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m. CT. Our speaker is Attorney Christopher Darden. Mr. Darden is best selling author, educator, former Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney and highly respected criminal defense attorney. While Mr. Darden is best known for his work as part of the team that prosecuted OJ Simpson, his varied career spans over 40 years. Mr. Darden will be discussing aspects of the California Racial Justice Act, and how one state has used statutory mandates to  address the effect of systemic racial inequity in the justice system. We will also discuss Mr. Darden’s observations of how people are treatment by law enforcement, the Courts and attorneys, and the resulting impacts on people’s trust and perception of fairness in the justice system. How do we overcome those barriers to be able to serve families better? Please join us for this thought-provoking discussion.
