Criminal Justice Reform: Remarks from Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX)
June 20, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am EDT

In recent years, criminal justice reform advocates have sought ways to lower recidivism rates, reduce crime, and save taxpayer dollars. At the state level, lawmakers have tackled this issue with programs that prepare the formerly incarcerated for life after prison, a model federal lawmakers have sought to emulate with major criminal justice reform legislation.

Please join AEI for a keynote address by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX), cosponsor of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2016, and a conversation with Sen. Cornyn and AEI’s Gerard Robinson to discuss efforts to reduce the nation’s prison population through reentry programs, including work and education initiatives, drug rehabilitation, job training, and faith-based partnerships.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) will give a keynote address on criminal justice reform, followed by a discussion with AEI’s Gerard Robinson.

Monday, June 20, 2016 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM, AEI, Twelfth Floor | 1150 Seventeenth Street, NW | Washington, DC 20036

Lunch will be served.
