Ending the Mass Incarceration Crisis
What Role Should Prosecutors Play in Ending the Mass Incarceration Crisis?
Monday, May 13, 2019 | 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Program Fee: Free for Members | $15 for Non-Members
Author and legal commentator Emily Bazelon will lead a conversation with Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez. Gonzalez recently introduced Justice 2020, an initiative aimed at sending fewer people to prison, ensuring more people are released early from prison, minimizing collateral consequences, and collaborating with community-based organizations in finding solutions to over-incarceration. This discussion will explore the role that prosecutors have played in creating a mass incarceration crisis in this country, as well as what prosecutors can do to play a constructive role in alleviating the crisis.
