• Promoting Smart Decarceration in Colorado

  • We hope you will join us at our next event on February 15th, Promoting Smart Decarceration in Colorado: Innovations and Opportunities. This half-day workshop will explore current initiatives to reduce incarceration in Colorado while repairing harms and improving public safety.

    The plenary address will be given by Carrie Pettus-Davis, Ph.D., Assistant Professor and Director of the Institute for Advancing Justice Research and Innovation at Washington University in St. Louis. Two panels will feature Colorado experts and activists, who will share about innovative policies and practices currently promoting smart decarceration across the state. The day will close with a networking reception, where we hope you’ll exchange newly inspired ideas about advancing meaningful criminal justice reform.
