The history of the U.S. criminal justice system is marked by racial inequality and sustained by present day policy. Large racial and ethnic disparities exist across the several stages of criminal legal processing, including in arrests, pre-trial detention, and sentencing and incarceration, among others, with Black, Latino, and Native Americans experiencing worse outcomes. Recently, The National Academies Committee on Law and Justice released their report Reducing Racial Inequalities in the Criminal Justice system, in which committee members performed the most comprehensive review to-date to explain why such large racial inequalities exist and to offer evidence-informed advice on how to reduce those inequalities. This webinar will highlight what the committee learned in their review and discuss evidence informed policies and practices that may aid in reducing the harms and racial disparities in the criminal justice system’s response to gun violence. The presenters will also discuss disparities as they appear in victimization, arrests and overall involvement with the criminal justice system; the drivers of these inequalities; and most importantly the policy and practice approaches to reducing these inequalities and disparities. Panelists: Nikki Jones Professor and Department Chair Department of African American Studies at University of California, Berkeley Tracey Meares Professor and Founding Director Justice Collaboratory, Yale Law School Nancy Rodriguez Professor Department of Criminology, Law and Society at University of California, Irvine Maria B. Velez Associate Professor University of Maryland Bruce Western Professor and Co-Director Department of Sociology and Social Justice, Justice Lab, Columbia University ***This discussion is part of the Joyce Foundation‘s monthly virtual Lunch & Learn webinar series. All the webinars in this series are free and open to the public.***
