Justice Reform

The United States has the largest prison population in the world. In 2010, Michelle Alexander’s ground-breaking book “The New Jim Crow” spotlighted the current age of Mass Incarceration.

Meanwhile, police brutality disproportionately affects black Americans. These speakers are rethinking criminal justice, rehabilitation, and policing.
