Reform Solutions for Women Caught in a Broken Judicial System

Please join us for a virtual conversation about the toll that incarceration takes on women, girls and families nationwide which can be personally devastating, and is impacting communities across America. For the past several years, Verizon has been an advocate for reform of the criminal legal system at the Federal and State level, including support for passage of the First Step and the Second Chance Acts.

To help us elevate the women’s perspective and the challenges they face, Verizon is partnering with the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL Women) to discuss these important policy issues.
