Criminal justice stakeholders met in Washington, D.C., on March 7-8, 2016, to engage in a dialogue focused on priorities for expanding the use of effective alternative sentencing programs. NACDL was a partner at the Aleph Sentencing Key Stakeholder Summit, which highlighted a range of sentencing alternatives, policies, and programs. The Summit brought together senior government officials, law enforcement, government, judiciary, defense, forensic social workers and psychologists, and nonprofits, as well as formerly incarcerated people, victims, and advocacy groups. Angelyn Frazer-Giles, NACDL’s director of state legislative affairs and special projects, moderated a panel titled “Collateral Consequences: Pursuing the Theory of a Second Chance.” The panel considered what an efficient criminal justice system would look like if it took into consideration public safety, restoration of communities, and effective re-entry for individuals.
