Race and the Criminal Legal System Discussion Series

Race Matters in our criminal legal system. It affects what happens from initial contact with police on the street and pretrial determinations, to the end of the case and everything in between. Race impacts the length of sentence someone is likely to receive and whether or not they receive the death penalty. This discussion series seeks to highlight how race intersects with various issues in the criminal legal system, navigating these racial disparities, and ways to advocate for change.

On this page, you can register for upcoming discussions in the series, provide suggestions for future discussions and watch past videos.
