This forum will bring together a range of leaders in the criminal justice field to talk about strategies that can reduce both violence and mass incarceration.  The day’s dynamic conversations and interviews will be organized around four key principles outlined in a recent Common Justice report—exploring responses to violence that are centered on survivors, based in accountability, driven by safety, and racially equitable.
