3rd Annual Lectures in Law and Humanities: Kim Dadou Brown speaks

A domestic violence survivor who spent 17 years in prison after she killed her abusive boyfriend will speak at Clemson University as the guest of the Clemson Humanities Hub during its 3rd Annual “Lectures in Law and Humanities” series, sponsored by Loebsack & Brownlee, PLLC.


Kim Dadou Brown was paroled in 2008 and joined other survivors to advocate for the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act to New York lawmakers, which passed in 2019 after being introduced almost 10 years earlier. The law allows a judge to resentence a domestic violence survivor who suffered sexual, psychological or physical abuse that contributed to a conviction if specific criteria are met.
