Black and Queer Part 2: Turning Tough Conversations into Jury Selection

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

For this session, it's recommended that you have attended Part A. We will talk about how to use some of the tough conversations that we hope you were inspired to have by Part A to generate ideas and a plan to deselect your jury. Because our tough conversation was about race and SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity), our focus in jury deselection will be on using the tough conversations we had earlier to generate strategic jury deselection.

This session will not be recorded.
