Event Description:


Tina Brown Live Media in partnership with John Jay College of Criminal Justice presents the AMERICAN JUSTICE SUMMIT. This half-day forum will convene major players from politics, law, the media, academia, and government as well as cutting-edge reformers who are working to eradicate inequities in our justice system. In a taut series of high-level discussions with leaders from the worlds of crime, punishment, rehabilitation and social innovation will spotlight a rising crisis that the best minds on both sides of the political aisle are working to resolve—and offer some solutions.
