Competing Goals in Local Criminal Justice Reformers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Valley Justice Coalition began in the urgent effort to stop the construction of a new jail and stop the expansion of the carceral state. Having won this initial campaign, they have tried a variety of approaches to advocacy at the local level. This workshop will describe divergent opinions and conflicts within the coalition which are representative of divergent interests and goals of criminal justice reform generally, with stories of both success and failures. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to role play some of the different kinds of advocates in their interactions with each other and in conversations with decision makers. Through this, they will gain clarity about how to navigate these conflicts and identify their own preferred advocacy strategies.
