We're delighted to announce that booking/pre-registration is now open for the LifeLines Zoom conference on Saturday 3rd October.
The conference will formally begin with a welcome at 11am, with admission from 10.30am when you may join an optional informal breakout group to meet and talk with other members. There will be a 30-minute break at 12.30, and the event will end at 2pm, followed by an AGM.
There will be two speakers - details below - as usual, and those of you who have attended conferences previously will know what inspiring people we are lucky enough to have as our guests. There will be other special features and opportunities to share thoughts and experiences - details will be forwarded to you by your co-ordinator and put on the website as they're finalised.
The conference is free and open to everyone aged 18 and over, but non-members must be registered as a guest of a member, and cannot participate in the AGM.
We're delighted that Christopher Scott, Founder and President of House of Renewed Hope in Texas, has accepted our invitation to speak at the LifeLines conference on Saturday 3rd October.
Christopher spent 13 years in prison for a capital murder he did not commit. After his eventual exoneration and release, he was determined to do all he could to help other victims of miscarriages of justice. He joined with two other men - Johnnie Lindsey, and Steven Phillips - who had also been exonerated after decades behind bars as innocent men, and set up House of Renewed Hope. They and their team investigate innocence claims and advocate for legislative change in the US criminal justice system. Their story is told in the award-winning documentary film 'True Conviction'.

Christopher is a courageous man and outstanding speaker who has nobly agreed to wake up before the crack of dawn in his home of Texas, to be with us!
Don't miss the chance to hear all about his life and work!
