The State of the American Criminal Justice System: Dinner Featuring Georgetown Professor Marc M. Howard '93
Please join the Yale Club of Washington, DC for a private dinner conversation with Marc M. Howard '93, Professor of Government and Law, and the founding Director of the Prisons and Justice Initiative, at Georgetown University. The author of three books, including most recently Unusually Cruel: Prisons, Punishment, and the Real American Exceptionalism, Howard is one of the country's leading voices and advocates for criminal justice and prison reform. He teaches a unique class in which undergraduate students work to overturn wrongful convictions, which led to the exoneration of Valentino Dixon and will soon be featured in a multi-episode documentary series. He also founded an innovative prison education program at the DC Jail, which recently hosted Kim Kardashian West. And he co-directs the Pivot Program for formerly incarcerated future entrepreneurs.
This event will address the state of the American criminal justice system, which has received tremendous attention recently, thanks to a bipartisan consensus in favor of reform. What are the next steps needed to achieve a genuinely just, fair, and rational system--and how can we achieve it?
