Save the Date to join us for the latest in Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences' Community Engagement Forums focusing on Wrongful Convictions in Washington State. The panelists will discuss recent cases of wrongful conviction here in WA (4 exonerations since 2008) focusing on the general factors that contributed to these wrongful convictions as well as what can be done to minimize future risk including procedural and legislative changes (modeled after what other states and local municipalities have already enacted). The forum will consist of a panel discussion followed by Q&A.
