This year, The Bronx Defenders is celebrating 25 years of radically reimagining justice. A quarter century ago, it was a radical act to found a public defender office in the South Bronx. Since then, through impact litigation, policy advocacy, and community organizing, The Bronx Defenders has pioneered a model that has not only defended more than 20,000 low-income Bronx residents in criminal, civil, child welfare, and immigration cases, but has changed laws and policies to attack the root causes of poverty and injustice, while empowering thousands more through our community intake, youth mentoring, and outreach programs.

We invite you to join us on Thursday, October 13, 2022, to hear how we will change the way public defense is understood and practiced in the next 25 years.

Date: Thursday, October 13, 2022
