Ford’s Theatre is partnering with the Theater and Policy Salon for a special post-performance discussion on “Justice” in Criminal Justice, following the 7:30 pm show of Twelve Angry Men on February 13.

Ford’s Theatre’s innovative production of a decades-old play serves to illuminate topical discussions about capital punishment and the criminal justice system, including the possible role of prejudice in adjudication and sentencing, and moral and legal issues surrounding capital punishment.

This event is being promoted in cooperation with the Delegation of the European Union to the USA.

The policy conversation will feature Aymeric Dupont, an EU diplomat working on Justice and Home Affairs at the Delegation of the European Union in DC, Ajmel Quereshi, Senior Counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and Jasmine L. Tyler, Advocacy Director, US Program, Human Rights Watch.
