Free Peer-Led Colloquium March 21st, 2013

Peer-Led Learning and Teaching in Osher (PLATO) presents:

From Combatants to Co-Conspirators: The Unlikely Partnership That Is Transforming The L.A.P.D.”

CR2Attorney and activist Connie Rice has taken on school and bus systems, death row,  the states of Mississippi and California, and the Los Angeles Police Department — and won.  Not just in court, where she vindicated major civil rights cases, but also on the streets and in prisons, where she spearheaded campaigns to reduce gang violence.

One of the founders of The Advancement Project, Connie recently published the book Power Concedes Nothing: One Woman’s Quest for Social Justice in America, from the Courtroom to the Kill Zones.

In the words of Los Angeles Magazine, Connie Rice “picked up where Clarence Darrow left off.”
