Hi everyone! We are honored to announce that Ian Manuel will be sharing his inspiring story about the strength of human resolve and kindness—even through the most heart-wrenching times—during his keynote at #ClioCloud9.
At 13 years old, Ian Manuel was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He spent 18 consecutive years of a 26-year sentence in isolation. No one expected him to lead the fight to end juvenile solitary confinement. After the Equal Justice Initiative secured his release in 2016, Ian began writing about his experience behind bars and calling for more meaningful reform, especially for children. As a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform, Ian will share:
✅The harrowing injustice of solitary confinement, especially for children
✅The disproportionate impact of the criminal justice system on young people of color
✅The need for added support for those reintegrating into society post-incarceration
