The Criminal Justice Policy Coalition Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Renewed Commitment to Reform the Sentence of Life Without Parole
Boston, MA, April 24, 2016 - The Criminal Justice Policy Coalition (CJPC) will mark its 20th anniversary on Tuesday, April 26 with an evening highlighting its campaign to eliminate life without parole sentences in Massachusetts, instead arguing for a maximum sentence that mandates parole review after 25 years of incarceration. This policy proposal is outlined in this recently released report. The event – from 6:15 to 8:00 pm – is free and open to the public and will be held at Roxbury Community College, 1234 Columbus Avenue, Roxbury, Massachusetts in Room 200 of the Student Center.
Criminal Justice Policy Coalition
(CJPC) was created in 1996 in order to bring together those individuals and organizations concerned about the individual and societal repercussions of the increasingly retributive nature of criminal justice policy in Massachusetts.
