After decades of advocacy work, criminal justice reformers have seen their efforts materialize into concrete legislative reforms. Most recently, New York, New Jersey, Washington DC and California have enacted reforms that address several issues including cash bail and pre-trial release. At the federal level, Congress passed The First Step Act that aims to help the formerly incarcerated transition back into everyday life. However, advocates are concerned that poor implementation may undermine their efforts and create unforseen barriers to meaningful reform. How can the philanthropic sector ensure hard won gains are not lost as reforms are implemented? What are the potential pitfalls of what funders need to be aware of? How can we lead the next level of reforms?
This program is a Food for Thought conversation hosted by the Committee for Equitable and Inclusive Philanthropy for PNY members to discuss “equity” as a tool to buttress their philanthropic practice and as a lens through which to understand current events. Rather than follow a set agenda, the conversation will be a forum for members to engage in informal, interactive discussion exploring issues of equity and inclusion by analyzing and discussing recent articles, research, editorials, and other media.
