About this event

UPDATE: We moved the event to a new venue. Please RSVP for your free ticket.

How do we know if crime is really up or down? What is good or bad quality crime data? Who has access? How can the public fact-check claims? These are just some of the questions this panel of academics and practitioners will discuss. In a city like Chicago, political interests often intersect with all of these questions. Each panelist will reflect on the most pressing problems concerning crime data, and the best ways Chicago can move forward to improve public safety.

Panelists:

  • Alec Karakatsanis, Founder & Executive Director, Civil Rights Corps
  • Aziz Z. Huq, Professor of Law, University of Chicago
  • Sharone R. Mitchell, Jr., Public Defender, Cook County
  • Stephanie Kollmann, Policy Director, Children and Family Justice Center (Northwestern Pritzker School of Law)

Moderator:

  • Robert Vargas, Professor of Sociology, University of Chicago
