GACDL's Winter Seminar

January 26, 2024

The ACSP had the opportunity to speak to public and private defenders and policy advocates on the topic of Avoiding Lonely Games: Choosing Allyship as a Defense Lawyering Practice, through a CLE presentation Luci gave at the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' (GACDL) 2024 Winter Seminar & Annual Meeting at the State Bar, and a social event afterwards. We were glad to be in and build community with local attorneys fighting hard for and with their clients. And we were very proud to see ACSP Board Member and movement lawyer, Devin Franklin (pictured below), and longtime ally and supporter, attorney Mark Loudon-Brown, honored with the GACDL President's Commitment to GACDL Award. Thanks to all the folks who made this happen, and to those who were willing to engage in critical conversations.

"Let My People Vote" Town Hall in Macon

The ACSP had our first tabling at the Macon, Georgia voting rights town hall organized by the Rights Restoration Coalition of Georgia.
