**COVID Policy - Masks will be strongly encouraged but not mandatory. No proof of vaccination is required, but you must complete this additional form (<-- click) as a part of your registration.  

ACCD will be held before Community Oriented Defense/Black Public Defender Association. You may register for only ACCD, only COD/BPDA, or both for a discounted rate. You may also register for Holistic Defense without the BPDA add-on. 

Those coming for the National Alliance of Sentencing Advocates & Mitigation Specialists (NASAMS) who are NOT seeking certification should register for Holistic Defense. Those who ARE seeking NASAMS certification should select that option. 

For NASAMS and Holistic Defense, those seeking CEU or CLE credits must purchase those registrations as noted. 


Are you looking for students or professionals with a passion for racial justice, and are interested in fighting against legal systems that are stripping our clients of their humanity?  This year the Holistic Defense Conference will have a recruiting event to help our members find like-minded individuals that could be future leaders in their organization.  Home to over a dozen universities/colleges/law schools, including two of this nation’s six HBCU Law Schools, the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) area is full of people looking for careers that make a difference.  Sign up now to have the opportunity to meet or interview this pool of applicants after you’ve attended the conference.  You care and will already be here.  They care, and they will be here.  Why not meet them?  Sign up!
