    Growing awareness of America's failed experiment with mass incarceration prompted changes at the state and federal level to reduce the scale of imprisonment. Truly meaningful reforms to the criminal justice system cannot be accomplished without acknowledgement of racial and ethnic disparities in the prison system, and focused attention on reduction of disparities. Please join leading advocates and researchers for a webinar discussing ways to challenge racial disparities in the criminal justice system through pragmatic policy solutions. Sponsored by The Sentencing Project. Click here for details and registration.
