The 2010 Colorado General Assembly passed a significant package of sentencing, parole, and other criminal justice related reform bills generated out of the work of the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ). The CCJJ has been meeting all year, and there will be more recommendations, and more criminal justice related legislation in the 2012 General Assembly. Please join us for a discussion of the ongoing work of the CCJJ, the budgetary and public safety impact of sentencing and parole reforms, what other states are doing and what’s in store for criminal justice reform in Colorado.

Where: Tuesday, February 8th at the University Club, 1673 Sherman Street, Denver CO 80202.

When: 5:00 PM reception, 5:30-7:00 Panel Event with Q and A.

Panelists include the Independence Institute’s Mike Krause, Colorado State Representative and CCJJ member Mark Waller, Colorado State Senator and drug policy task force member Pat Steadman, Richard Jerome from the Pew Center on the States Public Safety Performance Project, Christie Donner, Executive Director of the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition.
