Walking the Talk in Allyship – How to Effectively Support Criminal Justice Impacted Communities [01:02:07]

The purpose of this panel will be to discuss ways in which allies without direct experience with the criminal justice system can build stronger bridges and deeper relationships with those who do.  Topics for discussion will be how even those who are well-intentioned may overlook their own blind spots when they are crafting policy, public statements, litigation, etc., if they are not actively and authentically engaging with impacted communities.
