Opening Remarks by: TBD

This is a non-partisan event, as such there will be no campaign literature, buttons, or promotional materials permitted in the auditorium.

The debate will be moderated by Dr. Brie Williams. Brie Williams, MD, MS (Director, The Criminal Justice & Health Program at UCSF) is a Physician and Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Williams collaborates with colleagues from criminal justice, public safety, government and the law to integrate a healthcare perspective into criminal justice reform. Her research has called for increased attention to the impact of solitary confinement on adverse physical health outcomes; a more scientific development of medical “compassionate” release policies for incarcerated patients with serious illness; and improved systems for defining, recognizing, and responding to disability, dementia, and serious illness in the correctional environment. Dr. Williams has served as a consultant for jails, prisons, and legal and policy organizations throughout the U.S. and internationally, including the National ACLU, the U.S. Sentencing Commission, and the World Health Organization. As Founder and Director of Amend at UCSF, her work is increasingly focused on transforming culture in U.S. prisons and jails as a vital strategy for restoring health and humanity to the U.S. criminal justice system and ending mass incarceration.

The Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (PRL-IHPS), a co-host of this event, contributes to the solution of complex and challenging health policy problems through leadership in research, training, technical assistance, and public service. Our special competence lies in translating research across disciplines and fields to inform health policy. We undertake this work with a commitment to improve health and health care within local, state, national, and international communities and with a focus on improving the health of vulnerable populations.

The following candidates have confirmed that they will be in attendance (in alphabetical order): Chesa Boudin, Leif Dautch, Suzy Loftus, Nancy Tung
