Robin Steinberg, founder and Executive Director of the Bronx Defenders, joined Community Voices on show #65 to spread the word on the work the BXD does in the Bronx and with a burgeoning BXD project in Tulsa, Oklahoma, focused solely on the representation of women charged with crimes and currently in jail. Women are the fastest growing inmate population in the USA and this project will offer them holistic, community-driven defense.
Bronx Defenders is a not-for-profit public defense organization in the South Bronx serving 35,000 people a year through an interdisciplinary legal approach, as well as impact work focused on community organizing and advocacy.
Support the BXD and the #SheStillRises project live in person in NYC on July 21 at a community conversation on Justice with Dean Strang, defense attorney from the series Making of a Murderer. Learn more about the Bronx Defenders here.
