Keston Jones to speak on “The State of the Black Family” panel at Penn State Law

Bronx Defenders Parent Advocate and Focus on Fathers Project Coordinator Keston Jones will be joining a panel discussion at Penn State Law, organized by the Black Law Students Association, on Tuesday, February 3, 2015.

Penn State Law is hosting this program as part of Black History Month to address how Black families are treated throughout the justice system, particularly in the wake of recent events including the acquittals of the officers involved in the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner.

The panel discussion in which Keston will be participating, entitled “The State of the Black Family: Black Lives Matter,” aims to address the disparities and issues Black families face throughout the justice system, both as individuals and as a family.
