Overcoming Obstacles and Turning Enemies into Friends in Criminal Justice Reform

Sunday, Apr 19, 2015, 4:00 pm

In this workshop, two experts from the trenches will discuss obstacles in and opposition to criminal justice and sentencing reform, including which messages work (and don’t), who is still opposing reform (and why), how to build a coalition that wins over lawmakers, why time is on our side, and how we can create a long-term campaign for change. We’ll discuss the new coalitions developing on criminal justice and sentencing reform and how local faith groups can bridge the gaps between opponents and supporters of those reforms at home and in Washington.
