While the current state of criminal justice reform may seem dire between a president and attorney general opposed to reform and an increasingly polarized Congress, state and local advocates are stepping up to continue the reform movement. Through reform-minded prosecutors, dedicated criminal defense attorneys, strategic lawsuits, and advocates raising awareness, changes can be made on the state and local level where most incarceration takes place. The panel discusses current criminal justice reform efforts and how attorneys can get involved in this important work.
