Two Upcoming Events
Please join us for two exciting events next week!
The CCDPW, in collaboration with Harm Reduction International, is thrilled to announce the release of “No One Believed Me: A Global Overview of Women Facing the Death Penalty for Drug Offenses” at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva! This event will be livestreamed and is taking place from 1:30-3:00pm UTC (7:30-9:00am EST) and you can register to attend here.
Then, on October 7th at 12:00pm EST, CCDPW and Witness To Innocence will be co-hosting the launch of our new publication, “Defending Women and Transgender Persons Facing the Death Penalty: A Practical Guide.” This publication is a gender best practices manual for capital defenders representing women and members of the LGBTQ+ community facing extreme sentences. This is also open to the public! We hope you will join us as we host a panel of formerly incarcerated women and female lawyers from around the world as they discuss the utility of a gender sensitive approach. Register here!
