Description:
“Is it Just? Is it Justice?” will be presented by Todd Williams at the Sunday, September 15, 2019 meeting of the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville, 2:00-3:30 PM, at Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road, Asheville, NC. All are welcome to attend. Join our Buncombe County District Attorney, Todd Williams, for a wide-ranging discussion on the results and challenges in seeking safety, justice, victim support, accountability and transparency, while reducing recidivism, reducing the jail population, tackling the opioid crisis and fostering effective diversion programs for non-violent offenders aimed at treatment, rehabilitation and alternatives to incarceration. Add legislative and resource constraints, ethical considerations, and a diverse community perception of “Justice” and the discussion is sure to be lively, educational and thoughtful. Todd will talk about the Child Advocacy Center (for victims of child abuse and neglect), the Family Justice Center (for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault), the Justice Resource Center (to enable rehab, job training and other services in lieu of punishment), as well as Juvenile Misdemeanor Diversion Programs, Veterans’ Treatment Court, reforming cash bail and other criminal justice reform initiatives aimed at improving efficiency, effectiveness and compassionate outcomes. Todd Williams worked for nearly 15 years as a public defender before winning election as District Attorney in 2014 and again in 2018. Before turning to the law, Todd taught English as a second language and taught adult basic skills to textile workers, immigrants, and the homeless. That experience led Todd to pursue a career in social justice through public service law. He has a BA in English from UNC-Chapel Hill and a JD from Northeastern University School of Law. Informal discussion and refreshments will follow the presentation. The Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville endeavors to nurture the capacity and responsibility of human beings to act in their personal relationships and in the larger community to help create a better world. We are inspired by the ideal of working to create a more humane society, recognizing each person’s worth and dignity, and helping to bring out the best in him or her. We are a member of the American Ethical Union and an affiliate of the American Humanist Association. We join together to assist each other in developing ethical ideas and ideals, to celebrate life’s joys, support each other through life’s crises, and to cultivate ethical behavior in our community.
