Professors Harris and Lee Participate in White House Event on Criminal Justice Reform

Submitted by Jerald R Herting on
Alexes and Hedy were invited by the Obama administration to participate in a Department of Justice/White House event focusing on criminal justice reform.    The event include a session on the "Cycle of Incarceration: Prison, Debt and Bail Practices."  Both incarceration and court fees/fines are areas of expertise of our two colleagues and both have contributed substantially to the growing literature in these areas.  See the link below to a full story by UW Today.
Great honor and great input into the on-going policy discussion around equality in the criminal justice system.
