ACS Washington, DC: Perspectives on Furman v. Georgia (and What's Up with the Feds?)
Join the ACS Washington, DC Lawyer Chapter and the Abolitionist Action Committee for a virtual death penalty workshop on the anniversary of the 1972 Furman v. Georgia decision (in which the U.S. Supreme Court found the death penalty to be applied in an arbitrary and capricious manner) and the 1976 Gregg v. Georgia decision (which allowed executions to resume in the United States).
