We are excited to host our second annual virtual summit designed to bring a broader awareness to the issues that continue to face the criminal justice system in South Carolina. This October, we will host a virtual forum where scholars and activists can share information about criminal justice reform, followed by important discussions that can empower our attendees that can lead to real change. In 2020 we focused on racial disparities in our system, and this year we plan to talk about the different ways we can work together to reform our broken system.
