HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Talks Public Defense featuring OPD

John Oliver recently addressed the abysmal state of public defense across the country on his HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and included OPD and past caseload struggles and our current crowdfunding campaign due to funding crisis. 

"You have the right to an attorney, but our public defender system is massively overburdened. Access to an attorney is supposed to be a Constitutional right and it is increasingly under threat."
