Please join The Justice Collaboratory as we host a conference organized around our core concept: Justice Forward on Thursday, October 5th and Friday October 6th, 2017.
Justice Forward is the vision developed by the Justice Collaboratory to supplant an ineffectual set of core ideas that have been the basis for our national criminal justice agenda since the 1980’s. These outdated ideas- have proved incapable of generating effective, democratic solutions to the crises we face.
