Review for Center For Death Penalty Litigation (CDPL), Durham, NC, USA
CDPL is a nonprofit law firm with excellent leadership and dedicated staff. I worked at CDPL for several years, during which I was mentored and supported in all aspects of my work. While I was impressed with so many aspects of the organization, CDPL's commitment to litigating racial justice issues stood out in particular. The staff spend many hours each week working on racial justice litigation and projects. That commitment has led to positive outcomes in individual cases, favorable appellate opinions, and greater education and transparency about the racially biased nature of the death penalty. One cannot overstate the importance of CDPL in the movement to abolish the death penalty in North Carolina.
