Event description

Description

Communities across the country are grappling with the urgent crises of mass incarceration, opioid addiction, and fatal overdoses. At Toward Justice, participants will explore innovative municipal approaches, like Albany’s Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program, to improve community health and safety, address racial disparities, and save lives.

Join us for both days, or attend just one part -- the Neworking Event, or the Symposium -- these options can be selected after you begin the registration process. We have secured a limited number of hotel rooms at a cheaper rate, if you are interested in reserving a hotel room, please contact Keith Brown at Keith@Katalcenter.org for additional information.
