Any conversation about criminal justice between the powers that be and the community at large, is destined to be politically and emotionally charged. And yet, this discussion is one of the most important of our time. This offering acknowledges real policy and system change MUST be grounded in facts, that data fuels a truthful narrative and lays bare the impact and carriage of justice in this moment - for better and for worse.
