Join our Executive Director, Adnan Khan, on September 18, 2020 at 11:00 am – 1:15 pm PDT as he is on the panel to discuss:
From Arrest to Parole: Public Safety Through a Social Justice Lens
The criminal justice system is undeniably broken. Our system of mass incarceration does not serve justice, does not promote public safety and disproportionately harms communities of color. Over policing, overly zealous prosecutions, the imposition of unnecessarily long sentences, and the longstanding culture of denying parole to individuals who have served their sentences have led us to this point. This symposium will bring together pioneering attorneys, forensic experts, activists and formerly incarcerated people to discuss needed reforms and strategies for advancing toward a system that promotes public safety and addresses the system’s many inequities. Panelists will also address wrongful convictions and the role of forensics in the courtroom, from wrongfully convicting innocent people to helping set them free.

Mass and static incarceration will not be solved unless we address that which we are most afraid to talk about: violent crime, and/or those serving life sentences. Our mission is to change the way society and the justice system respond to violence and harm. From Proximity to policy.
