JUSTICE SUMMIT OBJECTIVES:
The Iowa Summit on Justice & Disparities convenes for 3 primary goals:
Information! Action! Solutions!
Each workshop, presentation, break-out session and panel will address all three of these objectives. The conference will serve as a vehicle to connect stakeholders with resources in an effort to work together for significant reduction in the startling rates of minority contact in the criminal justice system in Iowa.
Speakers & Panelists: National speakers, various justice practitioners, organizations and community members including: NAACP, Spectrum Resources, Disproportionate Minority Confinement, CCJP, State of Iowa Department of corrections, law enforcement representatives, and Iowa Judicial Officials.
Working Together for Change in Iowa!
For over a decade, Iowa has ranked number one in the nation for the number of African Americans per capita in the criminal justice system. Other
minority groups are also critically overrepresented. WE MUST CHANGE THIS!
