Please join the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) and Right On Crime for a discussion of criminal justice reform & increasing crime.

About this event

Several years ago, justice reformers from both left and right found common ground to reform the criminal justice system to save money and obtain better outcomes. Numerous reforms of varying types were enacted in states, while at the federal level the effort culminated in the First Step Act, passed by Congress and signed by President Trump in 2018.

More recently, cities across the nation have experienced an increase in violent crime. Is this yet another confusion between correlation and causality, or it is possible that some criminal justice reform efforts have led to an increase in crime? Is there such a thing as “good” criminal justice reform and “bad” reform? Can’t we have both a more just criminal justice system AND lower crime rates?

Please join the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) and Right On Crime on May 25 as we explore these questions with Brett Tolman, Executive Director of Right On Crime, and Ja’Ron Smith, Senior Fellow of Right On Crime. You’ll hear their expert takes on the increase in crime and data-driven, conservative criminal justice reform, and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions.
