Criminal Justice Reform Coalition Policy Summit
May 15, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am| Free
The annual Criminal Justice Reform Coalition Summit brings together 300 leaders from around the Commonwealth interested in comprehensive reform. Participants include elected officials, policy makers, public safety and corrections officials, advocates, and civic and religious leaders from Massachusetts and beyond.
This year’s program will feature a two-part conversation on justice reinvestment in Massachusetts, informed by a new opinion poll as well as two new research reports. The first piece of the conversation is how to save resources and maintain public safety through sentencing reform. The second component is how these resources could be reinvested into other public safety efforts as well as proven programs and services to build stronger communities and improve outcomes for former offenders.Chief Justice Ralph Gants, Congresswoman Katherine Clark and Marc A. Levin, director of the Center for Effective Justice & Right on Crime, have been named as speakers for the fourth annual Criminal Justice Reform Coalition Policy Summit.
