Moving Justice Forward Conference Held Oct 5–6


The Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law school will be hosting the Moving Justice Forward conference on October 5-6, 2017. A set of key stakeholders will participate in working meetings to highlight innovations that have advanced criminal justice reform over the past decade and strategize how to continue forward progress in the absence of sustained federal leadership. 

The public sessions of the conference include a Thursday afternoon keynote panel “Moving Justice Forward in the Absence of Federal Leadership,” which will include speakers Ronald Davis, Vanita Gupta, Karol Mason, and Cyrus Vance, Jr. There will also be a Friday morning panel discussion on “Collaborating Across Sectors in Support of Criminal Justice Reform,” that will include representatives from philanthropy, government, academia and the community to discuss how best to organize amongst themselves and in an effort to keep justice moving forward.

The Justice Collaboratory brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and researchers at Yale University and elsewhere to work on issues related to institutional reform and policy innovation and advancement. We infuse theory and empirical research in order to achieve our goal of making the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic.

This conference is co-sponsored by The Policy Lab at Yale.
