Peace and Justice Education Event: Race and the Jury – Illegal Discrimination in Jury Selection

September 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday, September 7
7 p.m. on Zoom

With Sue Linderman

In too many communities, the fairness, reliability, and integrity of the legal system have been compromised by clear evidence of racial bias in the selection of juries. Unrepresentative juries not only exclude and marginalize communities of color, they also produce wrongful convictions and unfair sentences. Our failure to remedy this longstanding problem of racial bias imperils the legitimacy of the U.S legal system. How does this happen? What needs to be done? Hosted by Westminster’s Peace & Justice Work Group.
