Jury rights outreach – Dover (3/8/16)


This morning I led a jury nullification outreach operation in Dover.

Jury nullification is where a jury chooses not to convict a defendant based on their own conscience rather than the letter of the law. Jury rights activists hand out flyers outside of courthouses informing jurors of their rights.

I was joined by Jessica Paxton and her two children. Despite it being a later selection, the courthouse was busy, with a considerable line forming out from the side entrance out into the parking lot. The kids helped with the first half of the operation. Jurors were very receptive, and Jessica and the kids were naturals. One had previously received a flyer.


In all, 80 jurors were reached, with two refusals.

Come join us in making a difference! Keep an eye on the activism calendar for future selection dates and let us know if you want to help.
