Guest Speaker
Bradley R. Haywood
Chief Public Defender at Office of the Public Defender for Arlington County and the City of Falls Church

Brad Haywood is the Chief Public Defender for Arlington County and the City of Falls Church, VA and founder and Executive Director of Justice Forward Virginia. He earned his B.A. from the University of Michigan and J.D. from Columbia University Law School. Since its inception in 2017, Justice Forward Virginia has become a statewide leader in criminal justice reform, having taken the advocacy lead in successful efforts to repeal mandatory jury sentencing and Virginia's felony petit larceny statute, limit pretextual policing practices, improve access of indigent defendants to expert funding, overhaul probation supervision, and bring needed reforms to laws governing pretrial release. Justice Forward also played a critical role in expungement reform and Virginia's abolition of the death penalty.

During his five years as Chief, the Arlington Public Defender has also become a force locally, both in the courthouse, with its zealous, client-centered trial practice on the behalf of indigent Arlingtonians, and in the community, through institutional advocacy and active participation in local criminal justice reform initiatives. Brad is the 2021 recipient of the NAACP Arlington County's Charles P. Monroe Civil Rights Award.
