Livestream: Accounting for Violence: How to Increase Safety and Reduce Our Failed Reliance on Mass Incarceration
April 11, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 9:00 am EDT

In-person attendance for this event is completely sold out, so we invite you to watch the livestream and join the conversation on Twitter @verainstitute using #AccountForJustice

This forum will bring together a range of leaders in the criminal justice field to talk about strategies that can reduce both violence and mass incarceration. The day’s dynamic conversations and interviews will be organized around four key principles outlined in a recent Common Justice report—exploring responses to violence that are centered on survivors, based in accountability, driven by safety, and racially equitable.
