A Just Cause - Protecting Civil Rights

A Just Cause - Protecting Civil Rights | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, Lisa Stewart and Lamont Banks, of the Colorado exoneration firm, A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Our Special Guests for tonight's show discussing Civil Rights are Andrew Laufer, Civil Rights Attorney, Paula Johnson, Professor of Law at Syracuse University, and Karen Bryson, Research Assistant and 3rd year Law Student at Syracuse University. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org. For more information, about A Just Cause and to Donate to the IRP6 legal defense fund, visit www.a-justcause.com.
