Summer Showdown Congress Kick Off

2020 — Online/ Zoom, FL/US

Summer Showdown- Congressional Debate is an online debate tournament being held on August 15th and 16th! In order to give back to our societies, ALL proceeds from the Summer Showdown tournament will go directly to the Innocence Project, a group that works to exonerate the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reforms the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. 

The Innocence Project's mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment. Especially during times like these, it is important we give back to organizations like the Innocence Project in order to promote fairness and equality in our societies.

Congressional debate provides a distinctive forum to openly express what matters most to us and communicating our narratives has never been more relevant in these unparalleled moments, we hope that you’ll join us!
