Fall Coalition Meeting

September 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

All are invited to join our quarterly meetings. Our focus for the fall meeting was the upcoming Racial Justice Act (RJA) case of Hasan Bacote in Johnston County, which we hope will pave the way for death-sentenced people across North Carolina to bring forward evidence of racism in their cases. Center for Death Penalty Litigation Executive Director Gretchen Engel and Campaign Strategist Tyler Swanson offered history and updates, including the legal team’s work not only to develop evidence of racism in Mr. Bacote’s trial, but also to dig into the history of racism in Johnston County and create a nuanced picture of how this case fits into a long history of racial oppression and the racist use of the death penalty. Meetings also include opportunities for networking and getting to know one another.
