Who has the power to build a new justice system?
"Who has the power to build a new justice system?" Event Registration
The facts about our criminal justice system are well known and overwhelming. Often, its many intricacies and many branches across our political and economic system can make it seem like solutions that get to the root of the problem are impossible. However, if we look outside of the walls of the judicial system, the prisons, the obvious places, we find that there is incredible potential to not only stem the harm of mass incarceration but build something entirely new. Who has the power to build a new justice system? The millions of people impacted by mass incarceration.

Ashoka Fellows are selected based on their ability to inspire changemaking in many more people around them towards systematic change. This gathering will convene four Ashoka Fellows working on transforming our justice systems from five different angles. 

Fellows Gina Clayton [Essie Justice Group], Raj Jayadev [Silicon Valley Debug], Noran Sanford [Growing Change], and Christina Fialho [Freedom for Immigrants (formerly CIVIC)] are working with mothers, youth, churches, veterans, to be powerful and effective agents of change against a broken system and towards a better one. Join Ashoka, local chapters of the League of Women Voters, and this incredible group of social entrepreneurs to learn about the biggest, most effective solutions to our national crisis and what the intersections across their work can teach us about empathy, democracy, and power.
