Meet the Specialist: Criminal Legal System

LWVMA’s Meet the Specialist program offers members the chance to take a deep dive into the bills we support in a topic area. Join Criminal Legal System (CLS) legislative specialist Nancy Bettinger on Monday, August 21, at 7:00 PM via Zoom to learn how punitive criminal legal system sentences are inequitable and ineffective. LWVMA supports prioritizing rehabilitation by advocating for passage of S1045/H1821, An Act to reduce mass incarceration. Nancy will offer background on the bill and what you can do to take action. Read testimony supporting the bill. Register to attend the event here.
