The Academy for Justice at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law—in collaboration with the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE)—invite you to join us for an intimate, invite-only roundtable discussion and dinner to facilitate the exchange of ideas and innovations in the overlapping fields of policing and homelessness on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. MST.
A panel of experts will examine critical issues within these fields, including the overcriminalization of homelessness, the potential for rapid rehousing, the provision of essential services (e.g., water and sanitation), and the success of strategies currently employed around the nation, all with an emphasis on exploring alternatives to criminal law enforcement in responding to homelessness.
After hearing from experts, a problem statement will allow for an opportunity to propose a three-year plan to address the overcriminalization of homelessness and to support alternative solutions to this problem. The ultimate work-product will be a white paper that presents the three-year plan, its constituent parts, and the underlying rationale.
This is an invite only event.
