Criminal Justice Reform

The Social Justice Hub Criminal Justice Reform team works to promote awareness and change related to social justice issues in the criminal justice system. Apply for leadership here,


Meetings take place on Mondays at 6:00 p.m. every other week during the semester. Fall semester meetings include Sept 12 (kickoff), Sept 26, Oct 10, Oct 24, Nov 7, Nov 21, and Dec 5.

Meetings can be accessed in person at the Social Justice Hub office (2nd Floor Union South) or over zoom here.

At these meetings, we discuss criminal justice topics, hold events with campus and community partners, and research for our newsletter. Some items we have researched include wrongful convictions, people of color in law, and local organizations involved in reducing recidivism. 

Members are invited to pursue any social justice-related issues in the criminal justice system that are of interest. Meet fellow students interested in reforming the criminal justice system, have your ideas heard, and learn how to be more involved on campus!
