More than two million adults and children are behind bars in this country. While progressives have long advocated for national corrections policy reform, the country’s recent economic difficulties have changed the debate altogether. Politicians and activists on both ends of the political spectrum are re-examining our criminal justice system in every respect. This symposium will address issues such as police practices, prison overcrowding, sentencing reform, decriminalization and diversion, clemency, and successful re-entry into society. The focus will be on generating bipartisan support for sustainable reform.
We look forward to having you join our symposium and participating in the lively discussion that is sure to take place. If you have any questions, please contact our Lead Articles & Symposium Editors Alex Harisiadis, firstname.lastname@example.org, Elyssa Lacson, email@example.com. This event qualifies for a CUA ethics credit.
