[LECTURE] Lynne Stewart, a former attorney, now advocate for justice, will be speaking at Burning Books this Thursday, April 28 at 7pm. Stewart, best known for her role in defending the “guilty” or “unpopular” people in cases, was convicted on charges of conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists in 2005. She served a 28 month sentence in October 2006, which later became a 10-year sentence in 2009. However, she was freed from prison in December of 2013 due to the terminal breast cancer. Stewart discusses how she was falsely accused of helping terrorists, and fights for the rights of all oppressed people. She is now a voice for the oppressed, and devotes her life for justice.
