Advancing Criminal Justice Reform Through a 21st Century Latinx Lens

Jan 20 @ 9:00 am-1:00 pm

Building off of our first convening held in May of 2021, this virtual gathering will focus on the interconnected and diverse experiences of the nation’s Latinx communities, and upcoming opportunities in 2022 to build power and advance necessary reforms and transformations within the nation’s justice system.

Through a curated agenda that touches on the wide spectrum of criminal justice experiences in the U.S. from a Latinx lens, this convening will showcase how criminal justice is a Latinx issue, and elevate models for cross-sectoral and multi-ethnic/multi-racial solidarity that seek to achieve substantive policy change and broader collective liberation.

The convening will culminate in the creation of a shared policy agenda that will inform federal, state, and local policy and organizing campaigns that seek to advance criminal justice reform for all.
