How can open data be used to transform inequities in our criminal justice system?
In this panel, presenters will discuss how those working inside and outside the criminal justice system are mobilizing data in new ways to change policy. This includes how progressive prosecutors and others inside the criminal justice system are evaluating data and using it to change current practices, how various community groups have pursued data access/transparency and then used that data to fight for changes, how journalists have accessed data and used it to show patterns of differential practices across communities, and how activists and organizers are raising important questions about the way big data is being used by law enforcement.

Panelists are:
Janae Bonsu, Organizer and Scholar and former National Co-Director and National Public Policy Chair of BYP100
Andy Clarno, Coordinator of the Policing in Chicago Research Group and Associate Professor of Sociology & African American Studies at UIC
Joe Ferguson, Former Inspector General for the City of Chicago
Jamie Kalven, Writer and Founding Executive Director of the Invisible Institute
Matthew Saniie, Chief Data Officer for Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office
