Criminal Justice Reform – Wednesday, September 23

One of the issues suffragists in the 19th century campaigned for, including Rhode Island’s Elizabeth Buffum Chace, was prison reform. What is being done to address the reliance of community safety policies on policing and prisons, overcome biases in the criminal justice system, promote the exercise of justice with equity, and not unjustly burden communities of color?
Speakers:
Jill Harrison – Professor of Justice Studies, Rhode Island College
James Monteiro – Reentry Campus Program
Judge Judith C. Savage – Former RI Superior Court Judge

7:00 pm - 8:15 pm.  The sessions are free but preregistration is required
