The Social Justice Hub Criminal Justice Reform team works to promote awareness and change related to social justice issues in the criminal justice system.
Meetings take place on Mondays at 6:00 p.m. during the Fall 2021 semester. 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, brainstorm ideas for future events, work on existing event planning, and research for our newsletter and podcast. Some items we have researched include wrongful convictions, people of color in law, and local organizations involved in reducing recidivism.
