Defenders Association

Participatory Defense is a movement across 33 cities. In participatory defense, community groups meet weekly and assist a person facing charges through the criminal justice process, week to week, and attend court dates.
The Digital Defense Project collaborators include: staff, facilitators and volunteers of Participatory Defense hubs and PhillyCAM. They create video social biographies for people facing charges so that DAs and judges see people facing charges beyond their open case and/or criminal record.
