A year-long series of dialogues and learning opportunities for students and the broader community.
The Race, Equity, and Policy Series features 5 virtual community forums and a virtual half-day conference where we facilitate conversations with experts and host keynote speakers to discuss criminal justice. These community conversations will explore multiple facets of criminal justice reform – Policing, Sentencing, Prisons, Criminal Justice and Immigrant Communities, and Community Activism.
Our goal is that all participants are engaged in critical discourse, informed by evidence, and empowered to take action based on the exploration of the U.S. criminal justice system as it is, and as it might be.
