People With Disabilities in the Criminal Justice System: Promising Legislation for Statewide Reforms

Join NCCJD as we delve into the stories that created statewide movements to pass legislation impacting people with disabilities in the criminal justice system as either suspects or victims of crime. Over the past two years, NCCJD has been compiling a database of such legislation in order to help criminal justice and disability professionals understand this issue from a national viewpoint and get an idea of what type of legislation is being passed and why. Find out how groups in Colorado and Maryland were able to pass such legislation and get tips on how to replicate their success in your community. Also, find out more about our new Criminal Justice and Disability Legislative Database!
