CCC Talk at UH Mānoa Law School
A wee announcement for our Hawai'i readers: This Tuesday I'll be giving a talk about humonetarianism (the impact of the financial crisis on criminal justice policies) at the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Here's more info about the event, including a downloadable version of the paper. I'll be happy to have you in the audience, and meeting our blog readers in person will be a treat.
While the talk will not focus solely on Hawai'i policies, I hope our audience members will have insights and thoughts about how the crisis has impacted Hawai'i. Last year, Kat Brady spoke to the Star Advertiser about the need to bring the out-of-state inmates back home from the mainland. Brady is a true humanitarian - not a humonetarian - but among the many good reasons to bring the inmates home and find solutions for mass incarceration, she mentions the cost issue.
