ACLU OF COLORADO: Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration


ACLU of Colorado issued the following announcement on June 13.

America’s criminal justice system reflects irrational fears stoked by politicians seeking to win election. Pointing to specific policies that are morally problematic and have failed to end the cycle of recidivism, Rachel Barkow argues that reform guided by evidence, not politics and emotions, will reduce crime and reverse mass incarceration.

Rachel Elise Barkow is the Segal Family Professor of Regulatory Law and Policy and the Faculty Director of the Center on the Administration of Criminal Law at New York University. She served as a law clerk to Judge Laurence H. Silberman on the District of Columbia Circuit and Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Rachel Barkow will read from her book “Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration” followed by a panel discussion.

An Evening with Rachel Barkow with special guest Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser.

Monday, June 24, 6:30 p.m.
