Over half of those incarcerated in the United States have been convicted of "crimes of violence." So, to tackle America’s mass incarceration crisis, we must confront the causes and consequences of violence and how they can be more effectively addressed by our criminal justice system – issues that, unfortunately, too often have been avoided by elected officials and reform movements.  Join us for a conversation among leaders in this complex, challenging, and critically-important field.  The panel will highlight the lived experiences of people who have survived and perpetrated violence, the political dynamics of reform efforts, and proposals for reconceptualizing approaches to violence to promote safety and healing and reduce incarceration.
