II Feature begins at 10:00 sharp, with Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. Under Vanita’s leadership, the Civil Rights Division continues to advance criminal justice reform and constitutional policing, including the investigation and reform of police departments in Ferguson; Cleveland; Baltimore; and Chicago, among other cities. As the chief civil rights prosecutor for the U.S., she also oversees a wide range of additional enforcement efforts.
III Brian Elderbroom, Director of Policy, Research & Administration, Alliance for Safety and Justice. Brian will discuss findings from ASJ’s national survey of victims’ views on safety and justice, “Crime Victims Speak,” a first of its kind research on crime survivors’ experiences with the justice system. The report reveals that victims overwhelmingly prefer approaches that prioritize rehabilitation over punishment and investments in prevention & treatment over more spending on prisons.
