Conversation About Crime Survivors and Justice Reforms

August 20, 2021
The Sentencing Project and national victim/survivor advocate Anne Seymour, with support from Open Philanthropy, sponsored a virtual conversation to identify strategies that can more wholly identify and address the needs of survivors, those who harm them, and the communities in which they reside.

The Sentencing Project works to promote effective and humane responses to crime that minimize imprisonment and criminalization by promoting racial/ethnic, economic and gender justice. Increasingly, crime survivors and those who assist them are critical partners in efforts to promote meaningful justice reforms, equitable access to services for survivors, crime prevention strategies including access to mental health care and community-based violence interruption initiatives, and restorative justice.

The Sentencing Project and national victim/survivor advocate Anne Seymour, with support from Open Philanthropy, sponsored a virtual conversation to address these and other critical issues. The goal of the conversation was to identify strategies that can more wholly identify and address the needs of survivors, those who harm them, and the communities in which they reside.
