-Jury Rights Day: Jury Nullification Outreach in Fairbanks, Alaska

JRD_brightblue_square_438x441Jury Rights Day was a big event again in Fairbanks, Alaska thanks to jury educator Maria Rensel and FIJA state contact Frank Turney organizing folks for jury nullification outreach. Maria reports on the day’s events:

We had a nice Jury Rights Day Celebration that was scheduled from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. but ended up lasting all day. We started out downtown at the Courthouse with Frank Turney (of course) and few others holding up a beautiful banner with the Statue of Liberty image on one end. But we were interview by our local television station and even though it wasn’t my best interview we got the word out and had a great time. At lunchtime we moved from the downtown area out to Airport Way to catch more traffic. Alex Ford held a hymnal in one hand and sang while I waved at traffic and helped him hold the banner up. Later we met back up with Frank on the Cushman Street Bridge. Alex sang again, Frank played the air guitar, much to the delight of the passing traffic while I passed out pamphlets and waved.

I’d like to try and make it bigger next year, but we had a wonderful time and shared the message of Liberty!

As has done regularly over the years, Frank Turney was kind enough to get a Jury Rights Day proclamation signed. This year’s was issued by Mayor Luke Hopkins of the Fairbanks North Star Borough.

Frank has also ordered up a copy of the television interview that we will share with you when it is available. In the meantime, check out these photos of juror educators in Fairbanks educating the community on Jury Rights Day. Many thanks to both Frank and Maria, and congratulations on another great Jury Rights Day!
