Event description
A dialogue about criminal justice reform in Newark, New Jersey, and the United States.

About this Event

This panel is comprised of criminal reform advocates to further explore the exhibit, In Search of the Just City: Rethinking the Old Essex County Jail. Panelists will discuss the relationship between social norms of punishment and the way society incarcerates its members judged to have violated the law. Using the 1837 Essex County Jail as a starting point, panelists will describe the criminal justice reforms they are currently involved in, such as voter enfranchisement initiatives, educational programs, and bail reform. This panel aims to stimulate discussion and provide opportunities for attendees to become involved in criminal justice and prison reform.

Speakers:

Alexander Shalom (Senior Supervising Attorney, ACLU-NJ)

Andrea McChristian (Law & Policy Director, NJ Institute for Social Justice)

Ronald Pierce (Democracy and Justice Fellow, NJ Institute for Social Justice)

Schneur Zalman Newfield (Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY)
