Nearly 100 viewers with an interest in criminal justice reform in the commonwealth tuned into an early December webinar on the subject, moderated by Bonnie Stabile of the Schar School’s Gender and Policy Center (GAP), and featuring Faye Taxman, director of the Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence (ACE!). Guests addressing the equity, effectiveness, and economics of incarceration included keynote speaker Jennifer Carroll Foy, former Virginia delegate and gubernatorial candidate; Bonnie Hoffman, director of public defense reform and training at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers; Claire Guthrie Gastañga, former director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia; and Edward Ungvarsky, criminal defense lawyer.
