Healing Injustice Conference

Saturday, October 29, 2022

8:30 am – 6:00 pm

We
are
thrilled
to
invite
you
to
the
inaugural
Healing
Injustice
conference
on
October
28th
and
29th,
2022
in-person
at
the
University
of
Houston
and
online.
This
interactive
conference
aims
to
not
only
share
information
about
holistic
defense,
but
contribute
to
the
advancement
of
the
field.
Holistic
“indigent”
defense
refers
to
approaches
that
engage
“teams
of
professionals
that
address
a
range
of
the
client’s
needs.”
This
approach
attempts
to
address
not
only
clients’
legal
needs,
but
also
seeks
to
ameliorate
the
harms
of
arrest
and
incarceration
(e.g.,
employment,
housing,
nutrition,
access
to
health
care)
upon
not
only
the
individual,
but
also
their
family
and
community.
This
is
a
groundbreaking
conference
that
brings
together
lawyers,
social
workers,
community
health
workers,
human
services
professionals,
students,
and
data
scientists
to
engage
with
the
possibilities
of
reshaping
the
way
that
people
without
economic
means
experience
legal
representation.
We
hope
that
you
will
join
us
by
registering
and
help
us
to
publicize
the
event
widely.
Hope
to
see
you
there!
