NAPD - The Color of Mitigation Conference

Time: June 13-15, 2023
Location: State Bar of Georgia

The Color of Mitigation is the first conference of its kind aimed at practitioners of color that work as, or are interested in, becoming mitigation specialists.

What is a mitigation specialist? Mitigation specialists are vital members of criminal defense teams, representing clients that are facing the death penalty in 24 out of 50 states in addition to those charged at a federal level. They are skilled members of the death penalty or capital teams who conduct life history investigations to humanize clients to the courts, juries, and other decision-makers.

The Color of Mitigation will welcome those interested in this area of defense work and provide critical training for those in the field. Accomplished members of the capital defense community will lead conference sessions and help build a strong professional network.

We will also help attendees build their professional/company profiles and assist them in gaining access to the field, one that serves many people of color as defendants but does not have an open door for practitioners of color.

This training is curated for:
  • Persons of color
  • Capital Mitigation investigators 
  • social workers interested in capital work
  • investigators doing mitigation on capital cases
  • fact investigators transitioning into mitigation investigation
