The San Antonio Four, as lesbian low-income women of color, hold intersecting identities that made them particularly vulnerable to juror bias and incarceration. Their case is also an example of how women’s wrongful convictions, which typically do not involve DNA evidence, can be particularly difficult to untangle. This event gives us the opportunity to watch a powerful documentary and hear directly from these brave women and their attorney, who will discuss new law regarding junk science that helped him win the women's release. We hope you can join us for this compelling evening.
