Although our event has passed, and was a resounding success, you can still support the event and the Foundation.
This very special reception honored the commitment and brilliance of Albert J. Krieger. In addition to his many accomplishments, Albert was a leader in the formation of NACDL, a past president of the association, a recipient of two of NACDL’s highest honors – the Robert C. Heeney Memorial Award and NACDL’s Lifetime Achievement Award – as well as the recipient of many other awards and accolades. We are grateful that Albert's family, friends, and colleagues will join us to recognize his commitment to excellence within the defense bar.
The NFCJ Annual Fundraiser supports many NACDL initiatives, including the Minority Fellowships to promote diversity in the criminal defense bar; the Return to Freedom Project, which includes numerous pro bono projects to secure reduction of excessive sentences and other back end relief; various strategic initiatives to promote sentencing reform and the trial penalty and ongoing efforts to oppose overcriminalization; Public Defense Scholarships to support training for public defenders and court-appointed counsel; and so much more!
A portion of the proceeds raised during this event will go toward the NFCJ's Albert J. Krieger Memorial Fund. This fund was established to support work that will honor his memory and commitment to excellence within the criminal defense bar.
