The Defining Justice Series event, hosted by The Atlantic, will bring together leaders from Capitol Hill and around the country to discuss the state of criminal justice reform across America. In particular, the event will consider how renewed federal debate on the issue might impact women and youth in the justice system. The growing consensus around criminal justice reform is complex: Republicans and Democrats alike support measures like banning the box, reforming bail systems, expanding reentry programs and changing sentences for nonviolent offenders, while others still express concern that certain reforms might threaten public safety.
