Accountability and Systemic Change: Navigating Reform-Oriented Prosecution

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Can prosecutors truly work to end mass incarceration? Is there a role for public defenders in the movement to change prosecution? If so, what is it and how can it be maximized? What does accountability look like in this context? How can public defenders best push for meaningful, sustainable change?

This session will not be recorded.
