In Honor of Chief Justice Gants: Eradicating Racial Disparities in the Criminal Justice System

October 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The late Chief Justice Gants was deeply concerned about the great disparity in the rates of imprisonment among Whites, African-Americans and Latinos in Massachusetts and sought to root out the inequities in the system that led to these disparate rates.  Professor Dehlia Umunna will engage in a conversation in his honor about the critical next steps in eradicating racial disparities in the criminal justice system. Panelists include Judge Jay Blitzman (Ret.), Judge Nancy Gertner (Ret.), and Rev. Rashaan Hall from the ACLU of Massachusetts.
