Helping #Philadelphia Families & Communities Understand the #CriminalJustice System & #LegalDefense:
"By the time a person's trial has been completed and they're awaiting sentencing, we're starting to do all this work and starting to figure out what's going on with this person- 'What do they need? Who are they? What kind of family support do they have?'
When we should've been starting that work at the time of the arrest." - Keir Grey explains #ParticipatoryDefense
#ParticipatoryDefense helps people charged with crimes and their loved ones understand and prepare for what's expected at each stage and each hearing.
One Step at a Time. One Hearing at a Time. One Outcome at a Time.
At Jewish Labor Committee- Philadelphia with Jewish Social Policy Action Network, ACLU of Pennsylvania, Rep. Jordan Harris

Thank you @gicolalane!

I would like to personally recognize Joy Kimbrough for being one of the few attorneys that Participatory Defense Nashville worked well with in 2017. She never put up a fight against the community wanting to be involved with her client’s case. She and the other defense attorneys (Derrick Scretchen & Doak Patton) embraced us, and recognized the strength and role the family and greater community had within the outcome of the case. She allowed me to testify on behalf of family, friends, and community members who had put so much effort in getting their loved one home by creating a social biographical video. We were in a very tough environment. This allowed our community member to be humanized, and not just looked at as an example or just another case number. Please keep her efforts in mind this year, as she is running for judge. Joy Kimbrough for Criminal Court Judge. @joyforjustice #participatorydefense #community #justice

Happy 2018! In 2017, families and communities we work with in Nashville had a total of 190 years of "TIME SAVED" from incarceration through their efforts.

We are excited to see how the power of family and community can challenge mass incarceration, and bring even more loved ones home this year! #ParticipatoryDefense #ProtectYourPeople #deincarceration #endmassincarceration #justice #freedomthinkers #movement

#ParticipatoryDefense is real. With the support of her family and community, our sister Imani who is one of the co-founders and lead participatory defense organizers at Community Defense of East Tennessee beat the system of incarceration and won her brother's freedom. She collected letters, kept in touch with his prison counselors, and put together a social bio packet to show the kind of support he would get as well as the community/ family that was waiting for him. Yesterday, he walked out of the prison gates and into the arms of his family.

Imani means Faith, and Faith brought him home. #protectyourpeople
From across Cali, people gathered at Chuco’s this week (here are Resilience OC and Silicon Valley De-Bug in the YJC’s Graf lab) to create an action plan to close youth prisons and end youth incarceration in California. #closeyouthprisons #protectyourpeople #buildyouthleaders #participatorydefense #dreambeyondbars

A wonderful update from Carlitos’ mom! She’s an unstoppable force for justice, taking on systems to defend her children and community, and growing the circle of support around her.
With the support of her De-Bug community, she’s been working tirelessly to turn that initial insurance denial into an approval and now Carlitos has a new date for a surgery with no out of pocket cost to the family!

Please read her note below, we will be returning all donations and are filled with gratitude for the kindness demonstrated in every like, share, donation and good thought sent Carlitos’ way!
From Vero:
I’d like to thank all the people for their help and cooperation in the campaign to help raise funds for Carlitos’ surgery. I have very good news – the surgery was just approved by the insurance. I received a call from the assistant of the doctor who will perform Carlitos’ surgery giving me the news that finally his surgery was approved. On behalf of Carlitos and our family we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help and support. May God bless you and again many thanks for your support! -Carlitos Daniel Cotero Haro & Veronica Haro #participatorydefense #protectyourpeople Sigue en español
¡Una maravillosa actualización de la mamá de Carlitos! Ella es una fuerza imparable de la justicia, enfrentando sistemas para defender a sus hijos y comunidad, y creciendo el círculo de apoyo a su alrededor.
Con el apoyo de su comunidad de De-Bug ha estado trabajando incansablemente para cambiar la negación inicial del seguro a una aprobación. Ahora Carlitos tiene una nueva fecha para una cirugía sin costo a su familia.
Por favor, lean su nota a continuación, estaremos devolviendo todas las donaciones y estamos llenos de gratitud por la amabilidad demostrada en todos los likes, con cada persona que compartió la campaña, cada donación y buenos pensamientos enviados a Carlitos!

The hands of Jitu Sadiki and Nane Alejandrez who led truces in the streets to end violence more than 25 years ago. Our movement has to be led by this kind of deep love and respect if we are to truly #closeyouthprisons and #buildyouthleaders . Honored to build with, share with, and learn from elders who keep holding it down #protectyourpeople #participatorydefense

It takes a community to overcome an unjust system. It was an honor sharing about my experience in Philly about the work I’m doing in Nashville with #participatorydefense ✊🏾

When we helped write and push for Prop 57, it's because we had our brothers like Glen in mind - family we were fighting for, fighting with, fighting to come home.
He had originally faced 28 years, beat some charges in trial but won some. The DA wanted 22 years, he got 8 though his perseverance, his family, community and fearless public defender. When he went in, he became an inmate firefighter, deployed in Napa, Monterey, etc and fought the big fires in the north. With Prop 57, he came home in 3 years. He walked in to today's Sunday meeting a FREE MAN, and immediately got to work supporting the 20+ families who showed up for support for their loved ones cases. Glen home is what the finish line looks like, especially for families starting the journey for the first time. We cant wait to keep walking with you, building with you Glen. He said "Debug is my home." Welcome home. #yesonprop57 #participatorydefense #protectyourpeople
