    About the Discussion
    Join the Center for Criminal Justice for an exploration of recent approaches to criminal prosecution in New York City and beyond. This panel discussion will examine the role of prosecutors in criminal legal reform and best practices for state and local prosecutors working under different constraints and in challenging political climates. Participants will learn about recent local initiatives involving the prosecution of marijuana and other misdemeanor offenses, post-conviction review, criminal record sealing, and other current efforts.

    Panelists will include Nitin Savur, Executive Assistant District Attorney for Strategic Initiatives at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, and Meg Reiss, Chief of Social Justice at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, and Nicole Fortier, Advocacy & Policy Counsel, ACLU’s Campaign for Smart Justice.

    Nick Turner, President and Director of the Vera Institute of Justice, will moderate.
