POLI 203 Speaker Series: Andrea Harrison and Katie Monroe – CANCELED
April 22, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This session of the POLI 203 Speaker Series, organized by Frank R. Baumgartner, will feature Andrea Harrison and Katie Monroe.
Ms. Harrison is the youngest daughter of a slain mother whose killer was wrongfully convicted. When the original conviction was overturned after almost two decades, the state declared the case to be “cold,” ensuring that the true perpetrator would likely go unpunished. Andrea’s stance is that victims and their families should stand up in bravery, speak out against injustice and fight back to change the narrative of violent crime victimization and re-victimization in cases of exoneration.
Katie Monroe, the daughter of an exoneree, is the Executive Director of Healing Justice, an organization that provides services and support to those affected by wrongful convictions.
