What constitutes criminal behavior and why? How do identity and circumstance play into the criminalization of individuals? What role does the education system play? What are the links between civil rights, human rights and the environment? What protections are there for individuals seeking asylum or fighting deportation?
These are a few of the questions the Pulitzer Center seeks to explore through conversations with journalists, editors, policymakers, academics and others during our 2020 annual conference focused on issues of justice.
Join us all day on Friday, June 5, in Washington, D.C., at the National Press Club for a series of plenary speakers, sessions, and interactive explorations. We’ll continue our time together at workshops on Saturday, June 6.
