Criminal Justice Reform: National Latinx Strategy Workshop


Advocates of criminal justice reform came together to discuss solutions to the overrepresentation of Latinos within the criminal system during the LatinoJustice and LPPI’s Criminal Justice Reform: National Latinx Strategy Workshop.

Summary:

On May 31, 2018 LatinoJustice and the UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative (LPPI) convened the first national Latinx conversation on Criminal Justice Reform at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. Over 50 scholars, practitioners, and advocates came together to share information and identify solutions on criminal justice issues. Participants identified the legal, policy, and cross-sectoral opportunities and challenges to address issues of mass incarceration, public safety, and over criminalization of Latinx in the U.S. through a series of break-out discussion groups, panel presentations, and a plenary discussion.
