This December, we once again gather for advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, training workshops, development, networking, and renewal.
This December, we gather for community. We gather to support. This powerful conference is filled with workshops, self-care events, networking, celebration and much, much more. We will acquire knowledge, obtain resources, and make connections that will elevate you to reach your professional and personal goals.
This December, we gather for sisterhood.
This event invites speakers who have been historically marginalized by age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, sexual identity, education, national origin, or any other distinguishing characteristic or trait. The goal of this event is to uplift marginalized perspectives within the public defense community.
This gathering is for all individuals, in all job titles, and practitioners who work or support public defense: attorneys, paralegals, core staff, social workers, trainers, policy advocates, and more. We also encourage and invite law students to join us. NAPD is committed to creating an event in a safe space that brings inspiration and transformation to persons of all gender identities, and for this event, we will specifically amplify female, non-binary, and/or gender non-conforming voices in public defense.

  • Professional Growth & Leadership – sessions that help participants develop their leadership voice or facilitating professional/personal growth
  • Well-Being and Self-Care – sessions that prioritize wellness and self care within the public defense community
  • Representing Women, Families, Children – sessions that center around the circumstances, challenges, and celebrations of representing women, families and children
