JOIN US: Community Conversation:After the CREW Report Thursday, March 10, 6:30 – 8:00pm

In an effort to contribute to the goal of a criminal legal system that ensures equal justice for all participants, Citizens for Racial Equity in Washtenaw (CREW) was formed to gather public data on the charging and sentencing of individuals in Washtenaw County and to assess whether the data reflected any racial disparities and the impact of any disparity on members of our community.

ICPJ,WeROC and the Faith Leaders Forum are hosting a virtual community forum as a follow-up to the CREW report. What happened since it was released, what the response has been, and what still needs to be done will be discussed.
