“My father, my hero’’
Jan 30, 2017

“Cynthia Roseberry, a criminal defense attorney and the daughter of an alcoholic, talks about the labels we give to people that tend to build walls of resentment and brokenness. She argues that love is stronger than those labels and breaks down the barriers that separate us.

“Ms. Roseberry currently serves as Project Manager for Clemency Project 2014. The Clemency Project – a partnership among the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, American Civil Liberties Union, the American Bar Association, Families Against Mandatory Minimums and the Federal Community and Public Defenders – was created in response to a challenge to the legal profession to provide pro bono assistance for clemency to federal prisoners who would likely receive a shorter sentence if they were sentenced today.

“This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx”
