On Monday June, 14 at 10:30, Jake Horowitz, project manager for Pew Center on the States' Public Safety Performance Project will participate in the panel discussion: "An Examination of Justice Reinvestment and Its Impact on Two States."
Funded in part by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Pew Center on the States, the justice reinvestment project is a data-driven strategy aimed at policymakers to "reduce spending on corrections, increase public safety and improve conditions in the neighborhoods to which most people released from prison return." Representatives from two states where the justice reinvestment strategy is currently being implemented will discuss how it is being used to reduce the rate of incarceration and how states can reinvest in local communities.
