Event: Defining Justice: The Experience of Women and Children Behind Bars – February 28 at 8:00 am

The growing consensus around criminal justice reform is complex: Republicans and Democrats alike support measures like banning the box, reforming bail systems, expanding reentry programs and changing sentences for nonviolent offenders; others still express concern that certain reforms might threaten public safety.

In this event in the Defining Justice series, The Atlantic will seek out leaders from Capitol Hill and around the country to discuss the state of criminal justice reform across America. In particular, the event will consider how renewed federal debate on the issue might impact women and youth in the justice system.

This event will also be live streamed at definingjustice.splashthat.com.
