The day to day work of state level criminal justice reform is supported by committed individuals and organizations including lawyers, judges, advocates, formerly incarcerated individuals, policymakers (on both sides of the aisle), and even district attorneys and members of the law enforcement community.
The State Criminal Justice Network (SCJN) is represented by just a few of these entities. NACDL’s unique State Criminal Justice Network (SCJN) provides a medium for our members, state and local affiliates and other state reform advocates, to exchange information, share resources, and develop strategies for promoting rational and humane criminal justice policies. In addition, it seeks to educate the public about the many issues influencing and facing the criminal justice system.
SCJN’s listserve does not require membership in the organization. To join the network, please contact NACDL’s State Legislative Affairs Director Angelyn C. Frazer at (202) 465-7642 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
