Uncommon Heroes: Champions of Hope & Healing

Impact Hub Oakland

Register now for UnCommon Law’s annual event, UnCommon Heroes.  This year’s theme is Champions of Hope and Healing.  We’re recognizing Elizabeth Calvin of Human Rights Watch, Daniel “Nane” Alejandrez of Barrios Unidos, and former client Nate Williams of Choices for Freedom and San Francisco’s Westside Community Services.  Together, they are bringing hope, healing, and inspiration to thousands of California prisoners who now see an opportunity to come home from their life sentences.
We also get to recognize the 21 men and women we helped to walk out of prison this year after decades inside – pushing our grand total above 170. One of those extraordinary individuals, James “J.C." Cavitt, is taking a break from being a full-time student, father and husband to be our master of ceremonies for the evening.
Presenters include Danny Glover, actor and activist, and Scott Budnick, founder of Anti-Recidivism Coalition.
