“Criminal Justice Reform – A Conversation Presented by Virginians for Reconciliation”

In the wake of the George Floyd case and on-going national protests regarding racial injustice and policing, a national conversation has been renewed on issues of criminal justice reform, policing our communities, and equality of opportunity under the law. A number of criminal justice and policing reforms are under consideration at the federal and state level, including sentencing reform, expungement of non-violent and low level convictions over time, access to improved job training and occupational licensing for those with prior convictions, and ban the box initiatives. Our panelists will discuss these and other initiatives for meaningful, practical reforms both in the area of criminal justice and policing.

Our distinguished panel of speakers will discuss theses and other initiatives for meaningful, practical reforms both in the area of criminal justice and policing. Panelists include Michael N. Herring, a partner at McGuireWoods LLP and former Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Richmond; Col. Kelvin R. Wright, Chief of Police for the City of Chesapeake; The Honorable Jerrauld C. Jones, Norfolk Circuit Court; and Professor Bradley P. Jacob. J.D., Regent University School of Law.
