Criminal Injustice in America

TUE, DEC 5, 2017

The criminal justice system is rife with racial bias, leading to a miscarriage of justice ranging from unjustified police violence and brutality to presumption of guilt and wrongful convictions. In the post-Ferguson era, we examine the role that race plays in the criminal justice system from policing to prosecuting. JCC Greater Boston is hosting a panel composed of a former prosecutor, criminal justice professor, civil rights attorney, sentencing reform activist, and a wrongfully convicted individual to explore racial inequities throughout the legal system.
