Don’t fight racism with racism

I always thought there would be glory in being quoted by a major publication.

St. Patrick’s day in Boston alone

Earlier this month, the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law’s Innocence Project, which works to overturn misappropriation of justice, announced a new partnership with the UBC School of Journalism.
