JOIN US FOR IOWA'S GROUND BREAKING
CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM EVENT
Engaging Citizens, State Decision Makers, National Experts, Politicians, Judges, Lawmakers, Law Enforcement, & Advocates Around Justice Reform and Minority Disproportionality.
For over a decade, Iowa has ranked #1 and is now #3 in the nation for the number of African Americans per capita in the criminal justice system. Other minority groups are also critically overrepresented.
WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO CHANGE THIS!
WHY WE GATHER VIRTUALLY
African Americans in Iowa are only 3.% of the population, yet they are 26% of the prison population. They are 11.1 times more likely than their Caucasian counterparts to be incarcerated, ranking Iowa as number 1 in the nation for this statistic. Other minority groups are also disproportionately represented.
Information! Action! Solutions! The Iowa Summit on Justice & Disparities serves as a vehicle to connect stakeholders with resources to work together for signiﬁcant reduction in the startling rates of minority contact in the criminal justice system in Iowa
