NACDL’s Free Conference on State Criminal Justice Reform
August 17, 2020 @ 9:00 am - August 19, 2020 @ 1:00 pm EDT

We are 1 week away from our 19th Annual State Criminal Justice Network Conference! Have you registered yet? Please take advantage of this year’s free, live virtual conference!


We have brought together the nation’s leading experts to discuss a number of pertinent state criminal justice reform issues.


This year’s conference will feature panel discussions on a range of topics, including:
  • Misinformation around bail reform, with speakers from New York discussing their experience combatting misleading public campaigns meant to derail reform and backpedal on progress made;
  • Effective messaging around criminal justice reform from communications and media experts, including Radley Balko of The Washington Post;
  • Policing in America, examining issues of transparency and accountability, as well as predictive policing and other analytical and surveillance techniques used by law enforcement;
  • State sentencing reform, ranging from school-zone enhancements, to mandatory minimums, to life sentences, to release opportunities during COVID-19, with an emphasis on changing narratives and passing legislation;
  • Marsy’s law, the sweeping victims’ rights constitutional amendment with far-reaching consequences for state criminal justice systems in states across the country
