    “”In the U.S. Congress, the NY State Legislature, and in other state legislative bodies across the country, criminal justice reform packages are being seriously considered with the intent of righting past wrongs. The priority focus of Brennan Center for Justice, a prominent voice in the reform movement, is to reduce mass incarceration while keeping down crime. Georgetown Law Professor Shon Hopwood decries a system that “sends people to prison as a first response instead of a last resort.” We will examine recent calls for reform and their chances for success, as well as the role we can play to right past wrongs.””
