This coming March we invite you to join the Institute on Race and Justice (IRJ) as they organize a panel on the recently released Netflix documentary, Trial 4. Trial 4 is about the unjustly convicted Sean K. Ellis and his 22 year struggle for exoneration. The film hits close to home—Ellis was wrongly convicted of killing a Boston police officer in 1993. This March, the docuseries will set the stage for IRJ’s panel on the implication of Ellis’s case and systemic racism in Boston.
Moderated by the Director of the IRJ, Jack McDevitt, the panel will feature Ted Landsmark, JD, PhD, Distinguished Professor and Director of the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, Daniel S. Medwed, JD, University Distinguished Professor of Law and Criminal Justice, and Lisa Kavanaugh, JD, Innocence Program Director at the Massachusetts Committee for Public Counsel Services. We ask that you register for the event here.
Please mark your calendars for Monday, March 1st, 5:00 – 5:30!
