Keynote Speaker: Brian Stolarz
We are delighted to announce that Brian Stolarz will be the keynote speaker at the 2017 Annual Conference! Stolarz served as habeas corpus counsel to Alfred Dewayne Brown, who was exonerated in June 2015 after spending 10 years on Texas’ death row. Stolarz received the 2015 Light of Justice Award from the Texas Defender Service for his efforts to secure justice for Mr. Brown, and his work on the case has been profiled in The Washington Post and the Houston Chronicle, and on the Today Show. His book about his relationship Dewayne, Grace and Justice on Death Row: The Race Against Time and Texas to Free an Innocent Man, is a Washington Post best-seller. Be sure to read Brian’s recent OpEd published in the Houston Chronicle and watch this short film featuring Brian and Dewayne.
