About this Event
Join us for an immersive podcast experience to celebrate the completion of Season One of Panic Button: The April Wilkens Case. The podcast tells the story of April Wilkens, a domestic violence survivor serving LIFE in an Oklahoma Prison, and two attorneys' journey to expose the truth about her conviction so we can finally bring her home.
For the first time in 25 years, the harrowing experience April Wilkens endured at the hands of her ex-fiance, Terry Carlton, and the heart-breaking crusade against her led by former Tulsa County DA Tim Harris that followed, are brought to the light. You'll see the exhibits from April's trial up close, and hear excerpts from the podcast that tackles the question of how a victim of domestic violence can become a criminal in the eyes of the law.
Join hosts Leslie Briggs and Colleen McCarty, as well as licensed master social worker and Battered Womens' Syndrome Expert, Molly Bryant, and others to learn about how Oklahoma's justice system treats criminalized abuse survivors--and what you can do about it.
