Advancing Justice 2017

An Agenda for Human Dignity & Public Safety

Criminal justice and policing reforms have made tremendous gains at both the state and federal level in the last several years. However, the ongoing opioid crisis, questions around violent crime, and continued police militarization show us that there is still much to be done.

On Thursday, October 26, please join the Charles Koch Institute for a one-day conference in Washington, D.C. to identify the next set of criminal justice reform priorities, and showcase a broad coalition of policy makers, academics, think tanks, and community activists who’ve helped bring us this far. Together, we are committed to supporting the best ideas and lending our voice to the national conversation for an advancement in human dignity and greater public safety. We hope you can join us.

The conference speakers include Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, John Pfaff, professor of law and economics at Fordham University, Doug Berman, the Robert J. Watkins/Procter & Gamble Professor of Law at Ohio State University, Anne Milgram, a professor of practice & distinguished scholar at New York University School of Law, former Baltimore Ravens Player Eugene Monroe, George J. Terwilliger III, former acting attorney general and partner at McGuireWoods, and Sharanda Jones, a criminal justice reform advocate who received clemency for a life sentence.
