Last October, #cut50 launched the Empathy Network and webinar series, engaging justice reform organizations and advocates, like yourselves, across our country. We invite you to join our next webinar:
“Measuring and Collecting Criminal Justice Data“
w/ Measures for Justice
Tuesday, January 9, 2018, at 10:00 AM PST
You must register in advance to join, space is limited. RSVP today!
The mission of Measures for Justice is to use data to measure and understand county-level criminal justice system performance in all 3,000+ counties across the US.
Their data portal aims to measure how the US criminal justice system is faring in three areas: Fair Process, Public Safety, and Fiscal Responsibility. Collecting this data every two years and updating this data regularly will increase its efficacy and usefulness to people who are directly impacted by the criminal justice system, organizations working to reform the system, and government agencies. It also has the potential to help solve long-standing and newly developed criminal justice challenges. Currently, there is a gap in criminal justice data because of records being kept locally, and not measuring the same issues. Measures for Justice provides context for responsible data interpretation, which will hopefully stem the use of inaccurate or incomplete sources in trying to identify problems and solutions related to mass incarceration.
