Over the last three decades, New York City has seen a dramatic in reduction in crime that has transformed it into one of the safest big cities in the United States. The proposal to replace Rikers Island with a network of borough-based jails–and the fundamental rethinking about past strategies of policing, prosecution, and detention–have brought New York’s criminal justice system to an inflection point. What criminal justice system do we want for our city for the 21st century and what kinds of spaces do we need to support it? Join us for this wide-ranging conversation about the future of justice in New York.
With Elizabeth Glazer, Director of the NYC Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, and Stanley Richards, Executive Vice President, The Fortune Society. Moderated by Rosalie Genevro, Executive Director, The Architectural League.Buy tickets/get more info now
