There are a number of access points for racism to creep into our civil and criminal justice systems. Individuals may find themselves caught in one or the other system, or both: many individuals in the criminal justice system have civil justice system stressors like housing or employment, and ensuring a “whole-person” approach and collaborative tactics might go a long way in ensuring the best outcome.
Join civil and criminal justice system advocates for a conversation that will explore how to hold system players accountable, the lasting effects of COVID-19 changes in court operations, collateral consequences, and places where judicial leadership can help. Moderator: Hon. J. Michelle Childs
