This panel will provide a survey of the region's racial disparity in the justice system and innovations for philanthropic partnership in equitable justice reform efforts throughout the region.

The Council for Court Excellence is committed to studying and reducing racial disparities in the justice system. In 2019, CCE produced a study on DC's justice system which revealed that DC is one of the heaviest policed cities in the country; racial disparities permeate every point of the system, and young adults make up the largest age group within the district jails. CCE is launching its second follow-up report providing an update on tracking key developments, issues, opportunities, and progress in DC over the last year.
