BDS HOSTS EVENT ON PARTICIPATORY DEFENSE WITH SILICON VALLEY DE-BUG AND MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA, PUBLIC DEFENSE HEADS

Raj Jayadev is the coordinator of Silicon Valley De-Bug. He is a co-founder of participatory defense, and trains communities nationally on the approach.

Last week, BDS hosted organizers from Silicon Valley De-Bug and heads of the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Public Defender’s office. They discussed ways in which the family of someone charged with a crime and their community can help defense attorneys with potentially useful information that might otherwise fly under the radar.
