October 10th, 2019
Takura Nyamfukudza, along with Judge Truman A. Morrison III, Judge Cynthia M. Ward, Carol A. Siemon, Shannon L.W. Schlegel, and Anethia O. Brewer participated in a panel and community discussion that was hosted by the Edgewood United Church and moderated by Professor Michael Lawrence.
The panel, Guilty of Being Poor?, focused on pretrial detention issues and solutions. To begin, each member spoke briefly about their respective professional and personal experiences to help frame the discussion. Those brief comments were followed by a robust discussion in response to questions posed by audience members.
The panel was part of a larger lecture series called the Morrison Lecture Series and it was instrumental in educating a wide audience on an important topic with far-reaching impacts.
