Criminal Justice Reform Symposium

Image may contain: text

Over the last 20 years, Connecticut has become a national leader in criminal justice reform. These reforms -- the result of vigorous community led campaigns advancing smart policy making -- have resulted in prison closings, a double-digit percentage decrease in prison populations, increased pardon approval and fewer probation violations resulting in re-incarceration.

But mass incarceration and the war on drugs still endure. To truly achieve just, equitable outcomes for health and safety in every community in Connecticut, much more needs to be done.

What’s the next step for reform in Connecticut? Where will the state be in the next 20 years? How can community leaders and policymakers collaborate to ensure that momentum for reform continues? What are the reforms that should be pursued in the next few years, and what are the reforms that need to be seeded for the next 20 years?

Join us at this event to hear organizers, researchers, policy makers and more discuss the history and future of criminal justice reform in Connecticut.
