Description

The final panel of the day moved away from abstract discussion of the Graham decision and provided those in attendance the opportunity to hear from individuals who have been directly impacted by Graham v. Florida. After reading a letter from Terrance Graham—whose case and victory set all of this change in motion despite still being incarcerated himself—Alonzo Turner-Bey and Roy Middleton spoke to the group. Both men shared their experiences with juvenile sentencing, their vulnerability as adolescents in an adult system, and how they changed and evolved throughout their sentences and subsequent releases.
