Changing Carceral Systems through Compassion, Practice, and Research || Harvard Radcliffe Institute

Description Racial disparities in our carceral systems are profound and troubling. As a society, we appear to be at an inflection point where racial justice is a core priority for the incoming Biden administration and a majority of the public. This program brings together the compassionate work of a practitioner on the front lines with the expertise of a world-renowned researcher in criminal justice policy. Together, they discuss the key challenges of racial inequity in carceral systems along with potential solutions that could help realize justice.
