Convener’s Corner, Nkechi Taifa

Who is the Justice Roundtable? What do you do? What happens at your Assemblies and Meetings?   As convener of the Roundtable, I get these questions all the time. Now, you can see for yourself the Justice Roundtable Assembly in action. We are on a roll!  The livestream video from our last quarterly Assembly (June 13), is available for your viewing pleasure, 24/7.

This Assembly featured a talk by James Forman, Jr. on his recently released book, “Locking Up Our Own,” followed by report updates from the Justice Roundtable Working Groups. Check us out, get involved and Take Action!

In case you missed it earlier this year, the Justice Roundtable’s Report – Roadmap to Criminal Justice Reform is posted on our website. Review, Get Involved, and Take Action!


Nkechi Taifa is the convener of the Justice Roundtable. An expert in the field of criminal justice, she is the Advocacy Director for Criminal Justice for the Open Society Foundations and Open Society Policy Center.
