Vision for Justice 2020 and Beyond: A New Paradigm for Public Safety
The Leadership Conference, in partnership with Civil Rights Corps, released Vision for Justice 2020 and Beyond: A New Paradigm for Public Safety, a comprehensive platform that provides actionable policies aimed at transforming our criminal-legal system and changing the way we approach public safety in this country.
Vision for Justice 2020 and Beyond has been endorsed by 117 civil and human rights and social justice organizations — a number worth noting because of the breadth of reach it represents. The groups shared Vision for Justice 2020 and Beyond with 2020 presidential candidates to offer critical policy guidance for drafting robust criminal justice reform agendas. It presents 14 planks addressing reforms like amending the pretrial process, public defense, prosecution, policing, and the criminalization of poverty.
