Join us virtually or in-person for an
eye-opening story from Keeda Haynes, Voting Rights Campaign
Strategist at The Sentencing Project, in her journey from prison
Bending the Arc: My Journey from Prison to
Politics is the
description of Keeda Haynes incredible journey, from wrongful
prosecution to law school upon release. With a unique background
and understanding in incarceration and law in this country, Keeda
decided to become a public defender and defend those who the
system abuses and criminalizes with prejudice. As a lawyer,
public defender, and later Congressional candidate, Keeda drew
from her own personal experiences with the way our unequal justice
system treats the most vulnerable. Through her unique perspective
and passionate activism, she now tells her story to help us
reshape our communities into what they could be—our future does
not have to be defined by our past.
Keeda will discuss her book and life journey in
conversation with Nicole Austin-Hillery, Executive
Director, US Program of the Human Rights Watch.
