2014 Meeting


Key Note Speaker: Ron Cotton and Jennifer Thompson, authors of the New Times Best Seller “Picking Cotton.”

Jennifer Thompson incorrectly (and unintentionally) identified Ron Cotton has the man who sexually assaulted her. Years later, Mr. Cotton was exonerated. Their story is described as “One man’s fight for truth. One woman’s struggle to recover. Two lives forever connected. A true story of forgiveness and hope.”

This will be a powerful firsthand account of false conviction and how it affects everyone involved.
