One thought on “

  1. Hi – my name is Franklin Baxley. I am the executive director at the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition. We were recently notified of this event, and our organization would like to be a sponsor, and set up an informational table.

    I’m having trouble figuring out how to be a sponsor. Is it too late to register as a sponsor?

    Please advise when you have a moment.

    Thank you.

    Yours truly,
