Using Data to Power Criminal Justice Reform

Sunday, March 13
5:00PM - 6:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 3-4
110 E 2nd St

For the past year, Sunlight Foundation has been cataloging the nation's criminal justice data and creating a unique comprehensive resource to better understand what data we have--and, perhaps more importantly, what we don’t.

Together with representatives of other projects surfacing criminal justice data, this panel will explore how more and better access to this information can help to empower a wide range of people working to improve our broken criminal justice system.
