Next week CURB will be hosting a call with our National Advisory Board Member Nicole Porter on Justice Reinvestment: How National Trends May Impact California. Nicole is the Director of Advocacy at the Sentencing Project in DC, where she coordinates state legislative and public education campaigns and works with advocates at the state and local level on planning media and advocacy strategies. She is a co-author of the report Ending Mass Incarceration: Charting a New Justice Reinvestment.
We will discuss how “Justice Reinvestment” has worked in other states, what complications and pitfalls to be aware of and what the implications might be for California. As many of you know Speaker Perez has recently convened an Assembly Select Committee on Justice Reinvestment and we are anticipating a series of legislation to move forward from this select committee, so this is a vital time for all of us to learn what has been happening nationally and what we need to be aware of here in California.
