Criminal and Juvenile Justice Reform in the U.S.


Justice Policy Institute

Abstract

Marc Schindler, executive director of the Justice Policy Institute, will talk from his perspective as an attorney, researcher, and former juvenile corrections administrator, about the justice reform landscape in the United States.  Issues covered will include how to break America’s addiction to incarceration and help build safer and stronger communities.

Marc Schindler is Executive Director of the Justice Policy Institute (JPI), a national research and policy organization dedicated to reducing the use of incarceration in the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Prior to joining JPI in 2013, Marc was a partner with Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP), a philanthropic investment organization funding youth programs in the National Capital Region. Marc previously held leadership roles with the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS), Washington, DC’s executive branch juvenile corrections agency, including serving as General Counsel, Chief of Staff, and Interim Director. While there, he helped lead reforms, which resulted in the closure of Oak Hill, DC’s long-beleaguered youth prison, and dramatic reductions in the number of youth incarcerated.
