Strategy Discussion: Reporting and Researching Criminal Justice from a Bipartisan Perspective


9:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT

Recent events in Baltimore and other cities have shone a spotlight on the challenges of our criminal justice system and have galvanized the beginnings of a serious movement for dramatic policy change. Please join the Center for American Progress in partnership with FreedomWorks, for a daylong strategy session to discuss how to improve research and reporting on criminal justice issues to ensure there is a well-informed public debate about the policy questions at stake. The daylong discussion will include a select group of researchers, reporters, policymakers, and experts in the field.

A reception off-site will follow.
