Mayors Join to Advance Justice Reform
February 15, 2018 | From the field | Criminal Justice

Mayors from 10 cities have joined with the Center for American Progress to launch a national initiative of city leaders committed to pursuing a fair, equitable, and comprehensive approach to public safety and criminal justice reform. Mayors for Smart on Crime, supported by MacArthur's Safety and Justice Challenge, brings together mayors from cities of varying sizes and regions to present a unified voice for Smart on Crime principles. Each quarter, mayors will focus on one of the networks' five core issue areas: violence reduction and prevention, pre-trial and bail reform, accountable community policing, opportunities for the formerly incarcerated or those involved with the justice system, and public health solutions and investments.
