As the criminal justice system comes under increased scrutiny, so too does each profession that has operated within and supported a system that has evolved into a catalyst for infringement on human rights, abuse of civil rights, and an escalation of social unrest and civil disobedience. Is the criminal justice system doing exactly what it was designed to do, or has it morphed into something very different? This webinar will explore the role members of state legislatures, police, courts, corrections, and the juvenile justice system have played in our current system. It will delve into the seemingly impenetrable barriers to criminal justice reform, as well as steps toward progress that have been made. We will also examine whether there is a moral responsibility to assert our respective positions in active pursuit of requisite changes.

Panelists include:
- CK Hoffler – President, National Bar Association
- Brittney Reed – Assistant Public Defender, East Baton Rouge Office of the Public Defender
- Ariana M. Guzmán-Garcia. Esq., MA – US Probation Officer, Federal US Courts for the District of Puerto Rico.
- Cynthia Swann (Moderator) – Council Member, ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice; Co-Chair, Criminal Justice Committee, ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice
