About the Event

Across America, almost 4.4 million people are under community corrections: probation or parole. This is more than double the number of people incarcerated, and a 240% increase since 1980. More than three-quarters of these individuals are serving terms for non-violent offenses and, just like mass incarceration, community supervision has disproportionate and devastating impacts on communities of color and other vulnerable populations, as well as immense economic consequences.

As we continue to push for de-incarceration, it is critically important that we examine what it means to impose mass community surveillance measures, its implications, and how we can do better. This event will gather participants in Justice Policy Network and the Summit Impact Community to connect with one another over these topics and issues.

Event Info

On Thursday, April 29th, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm PST, Justice Policy Network and Summit will bring together Wendy Still, Chief Probation Officer Alameda County Probation Department; Katy Miller, Chief Probation Officer at San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department; and Cristine DeBerry, Founder and Executive Director of the Prosecutors Alliance, to discuss opportunities to vastly improve the Community Correctional systems in the U.S.
