Finding Solutions to Illinois’ Prison Overcrowding Crisis – Friday, April 20, 10:00AM

17 Apr 2012 by IICLA, Comments Off
On Friday April 20, the Coalition for Prison Reform will be convening advocates, systems stakeholders and media representatives to discuss, “Solutions to Illinois’ Prison Over-Crowding Crisis”. The focus of this meeting will be to highlight the current situation in Illinois and promising solutions to reduce prison populations, ensure community safety and save taxpayer dollars.
In January of this year, a group of advocates met to discuss the problem and its implications for Illinois’ prisons. Since then, we have engaged in research and policy development. Grassroots efforts have taken place to shed light on this matter and to ensure that our state leadership focuses on comprehensive prison reform that will serve to control crime and increase public safety.
