    Keynote Address: Justice Reivestment, a view from the Prosecutor's Perspective

    Speaker: John Chisholm, District Attorney Milwaukee County, Wisconsin

    Willamette Room, Level 2

    Starting in 2006, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office invited the Vera Institute of Justice to examine the issue of prosecution and racial disparity. Recently, Milwaukee was selected by the MacArthur Foundation to implement the Safety and Justice Challenge, aimed at reducing the use of jail for lower risk offenses and those suffering from mental illness. District Attorney Chisholm will discuss his experience over the last decade pioneering approaches to address both racial disparity and his experience with the redirection of resources from incarceration to community based interventions.

    Plenary Session: Ladies First, Understanding the Risk and Needs of Justice Involved Women

    Speaker: Dr. Emily Salisbury, University of Nevada Las Vegas

    Willamette Room, Level 2

    Although women are not committing more frequent or more serious crimes, the number of women imprisoned by the Oregon Department of Corrections has nearly tripled in the last 20 years. Meanwhile, the number of women incarcerated in Oregon's local and county jails doubled. The over-incarceration of women, especially economically marginalized women of color, throughout the state can no longer be ignored and criminal justice stakeholders should be prepared to see these numbers increase. While some positive reforms have been made, including the implementation of a validated risk and needs assessment specifically designed for women and the creation of the Family Sentencing Alternative, far more reform and resources are needed especially among local community corrections agencies. Stakeholders must understand the wealth of evidence supporting women's lower risk to public safety, their unique criminogenic needs while on supervision, and their distinct pathways to incarceration. In fact, there is now enough evidence to support reformulating and expanding upon the risk, need, and responsivity principles for justice involved women.

    Keynote Address: Looking Back, Moving Forward

    Speaker: Kris Nyrop, LEAD National Support Director

    Willamette Room, Level 2

    Over the past decade a variety of efforts have emerged that attempt to thread the needle of increasing public order and safety while better addressing the underlying causes of criminal behavior. Examples of such approaches include Justice Reinvestment, Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD), specialized courts, prison reentry programs, and treatment alternatives to sentencing. Most of these innovative approaches involve cross-system collaboration and "silo-busting" -- getting individuals and entities working together who do not normally even talk. This presentation will focus on what we have learned over the past 40 years about what works in addressing low-level criminal activity, often driven by behavioral health issues. In particular, we will examine how approaches that some have defined as public health focused can be utilized in the interests of public order and safety. By looking at lessons from harm reduction efforts with active drug users, increased community based treatment, and diversions away from the criminal justice system, we will explore several potential paths forward to achieve better system and individual outcomes.

    Plenary Session: Neurobiology of Addiction

    Speaker: Timothy P. Condon, Ph.D., Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse and Addiction (CASAA), University of New Mexico

    Salem Convention Center Gallery

    This session will explore what we have learned about the neuroscience of addiction from cellular changes to neural circuits. These changes will be discussed as some of the underlying factors responsible for substance use disorders (SUDs). The interaction of the biology, behavior and the environment will be explored to understand what compels much of the behavior that is observed in people with substance use disorder. This session will also explore what research has shown us about effective treatments for SUDs and how the blending of the public health and public safety systems can work together to address these problems.

    Plenary Session: Khalil A. Cumberbatch

    Speaker: Khalil A. Cumberbatch, Manager of Trainings, JustLeadershipUSA

    Willamette Room, Level 2

    When law enforcement began trying to aggressively eradicate the drug epidemic, there was a lack of understanding about the long-term impact those actions would have on low-income and communities of color. With drug use in the 1980's and 1990's being almost equivalent in both white and black communities, almost all of the resources allocated to eliminating illegal drug trafficking were deployed to neglected and marginalized communities. This war on drugs caused mass incarceration and immeasurable levels of unaddressed generational trauma. This presentation will briefly explore those impacts and how we as a country have failed to address them.

    Plenary Session: Rethinking Collateral Consequences

    Speaker: Judge Frederick Block, US District Court Judge for the Eastern District of New York

    Willamette Room, Level 2

    The Honorable Frederic Block is a senior district court judge in the Eastern District of New York. Judge Block’s presentation, Rethinking Collateral Consequences, will discuss the profusion of collateral consequences that follow felony convictions under both state and federal law. Under Oregon state law alone, there are well over a thousand statutory and regulatory collateral consequences, many of which challenge a convicted felon’s ability to construct a productive life post-incarceration. In his presentation, Judge Block will explore the effect of collateral consequences on rehabilitation and recidivism, as well as the need for reform.
