Clemency Project Information Meeting
September 08, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043
NC Clemency Project Volunteers Needed: The Center for Criminal Justice and Professional Responsibility is spearheading advocacy for individuals eligible to have their sentences reviewed by North Carolina's Juvenile Sentence Review Board ("JSRB"). The JSRB will make clemency recommendations to Governor Cooper in cases where a person is incarcerated for crimes that occurred when they were juveniles. Volunteers will prepare clemency petitions that will be reviewed by the JSRB. If the incarcerated person has demonstrated rehabilitation, a favorable recommendation from the JSRB to the Governor may result in a sentence commutation. Volunteers will review incarceration records and have an opportunity to work directly with clients. Interested students should RSVP at https://forms.gle/DUTskGqtWVwd6BFXA. If you have any questions, please contact Adelyn Curran, firstname.lastname@example.org.
