Prisons are frequently called “corrections” institutions, but a host of issues prevent them from living up to that moniker. We join a panel of advocates and practitioners to debate hot button prison reform topics, including programming effectiveness, solitary confinement, population specific needs, and privatization.

Anthony Annucci, Acting Commissioner, NY Dept. of Corrections and Community Supervision
Lauren-Brooke Eisen, Brennan Center for Justice
Amy Lopez, Deputy Director, DC Dept. of Corrections
Rachael Seevers, Disability Rights Washington
Bianca Tylek, Corrections Accountability Project

This panel is being hosted by John Jay College of Criminal Justice as part of the 2018 Smart on Crime Innovations Conference. Open to the public.
