The Justice Roundtable
September 5, 2002
The Open Society Policy Center convenes the Justice Roundtable, a diverse coalition of more than 100 organizations working to reform federal criminal justice laws and policies. The Roundtable serves as a hub for coordinating the federal legislative and advocacy efforts of the Washington criminal justice advocacy community. In its first decade, the Roundtable was instrumental in the achievement of two major legislative victories that have begun to change the United States’ approach to criminal justice – the Second Chance Act of 2008 and the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010. The Justice Roundtable’s goal is to focus the attention of legislators, the media, and the public on the importance of reentry and sentencing issues.
