Philadelphia Participatory Defense Hub Schedules


Community-based Participatory Defense Hubs are available to help individuals who face charges navigate the criminal justice system. Trained Hub leaders help participants gain a deeper understanding of the justice process, anticipate what is expected from them at each stage, and prepare for meetings with their attorney and their hearings.

Many Hubs have online meetings during the pandemic. See Zoom links below.

Defender Association of Philadelphia offers Know-Your-Systems Trainings throughout the city to help individuals, family members, and supporters understand and navigate the process. Contact us to book a training for your agency, community group, congregation, barbershop, or block!
