Default Alabama Summit on Reimagining Justice Oct 21,2020

If anyone is interested in making changes in Alabama & hearing what others are trying to do, please check out this summit on reimagining justice. I'll list the agenda at the end of this invite. The summit wraps up with a discussion with some Alabama legislators.


The Alabama Justice Initiative and its partners would like to invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual Alabama Summit on Reimagining Justice: Exploring Policy Solutions surrounding Alabama’s Criminal Legal System. This year’s summit will be convened virtually on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 from 9 AM-3 PM CST on Zoom. Click here to register .

The summit will bring together state and local partners to discuss and strategize about an array of issues that are plaguing Alabamians and marginalized communities across the state. We will have panels of experts to discuss ways we can decarcerate Alabama through parole reform and the #CommunitiesNotPrisons campaign; expand voting rights and voter engagement; fight for Medicaid expansion and expansion of mental health services; eliminate excessive fines and fees; defund the police; and fight against the assault on women and reproductive freedom.
The convening will be centered in the experiences of individuals who have been impacted by the
criminal legal system and bring together state and local advocates, service providers, systems leaders, policymakers and national partners. We will strategize and reimagine how policies and programs can better support bold and systemic solutions to mitigate the impact of incarceration on low-income communities and communities of color in Alabama.
Your voice, participation, and perspective will help to build on the momentum we have gained to demand social, economic, health and racial justice for those impacted by the criminal legal system. We hope you will join us to further develop our plans for next steps in achieving justice in Alabama.

The agenda includes:
  • Our Vote, Our Voice: Election Protection 2020
  • Covid-19 and Mass Incarceration Now, And Where We Go from Here
  • #CommunitiesNotPrisons
  • Community Supervision Parole Reform & Eliminating Fines & Fees
  • Centering Community Safety
  • Reproductive Rights & Restorative Justice: The Fight for Justice in America
  • Fireside Chat with Alabama Legislators
