CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM EVENT

Our 2024 Nebraska Justice Summit Keynote:
Dr. Yusef Salaam

Engaging Citizens, State Decision Makers, National Experts, Politicians, Judges, Lawmakers, Law Enforcement, & Advocates Around Justice Reform and Minority Disproportionality.

Over 10 years ago, we founded the Iowa Summit on Justice & Disparities to address Iowa’s notorious distinction of ranking number one in the nation for disproportionately incarcerating African Americans and other minorities. Over the years, through the work of dedicated advocates, engaged officials and keen practitioners we have seen slight improvement and Iowa now ranks number 6 in the nation for disproportionality.  

In 2024, the Justice Summit was introduced to Nebraska.  2020 data shows that Nebraska incarcerates Black Citizens at a rate of 8.9 times that of the White incarceration rate, placing Nebraska number nine in the country for the severity of the disproportionality.  

 

We know that Nebraska can do better.  This summit serves as an annual check in for the progress that we can make together. 

WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO CHANGE THIS!
