IMAGINE MORE: Disrupting the Criminal Justice System

The Eagleton Institute is pleased to co-sponsor IMAGINE MORE: Racial Justice Begins with Us. This series brings together one of the largest and most diverse lineups of New Jersey organizations and voices from across the ideological spectrum to develop an action plan for racial justice and reparations. Participants include national thought leaders, philanthropic and community-based organizations, policy advocates, jurists, and local activists who have been directly impacted by injustice.

Through a series of 6 virtual events IMAGINE MORE will work to educate the public on reparations and how remedying racial injustice will create a more stable and prosperous future for all of New Jersey. At each event the speakers will offer strategies for advancing racial justice and repairing the harmful impacts of systemic racism. The events will connect residents with change-making organizations so that they can take action in their own communities. Following each event, participants will receive resources and information to guide them into action for racial justice and reparations.

Disrupting the Criminal Justice System is the second installment in the IMAGINE MORE: Racial Justice Begins with Us virtual series. This session will explore the root causes and discuss strategies to end the criminalization of New Jersey’s Black, Brown, and immigrant residents and repair the harms caused by this unjust system.
