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.
