APRIL 12, 2013

Members of the D.C. community came out in droves to hear The Morrison Brothers Band and Mary Ann Redmond at JusticeAid’s inaugural event, held April 12, 2013, at The Hamilton. The concert attracted over 400 people and raised more than $40,000 to support Gideon’s Promise, formerly the Southern Public Defender Training Center, whose mission is to inspire, train, and mobilize legal professionals to provide the highest quality defense representation to people unable to afford an attorney.

As a result of this event, we were able to provide support to our summer law clerks working in our public defender partner offices across the South and partial scholarship funds to three new public defenders who joined our program this summer!
