About the Program
While the COVID-19 pandemic has required changes to law enforcement and correctional policies, widespread protests over the police-involved deaths of African Americans have intensified concern about racial and ethnic disparities in our criminal justice system. In recent years, California has implemented significant reforms that, while not motivated by racial disparities, are narrowing them. PPIC researcher Brandon Martin will outline new findings on Prop 47’s impact, and a panel of experts will discuss a wide range of criminal justice issues in California.
This research and event are supported with funding from Arnold Ventures.
