For this general body meeting, we will be having Judge Cocroft, Judge Peeples, and Prosecutor Jarrod Skinner speaking on the importance and need for black's to be more involved with the judicial process, in addition to how Judge's are scored, and the focus for rebuild versus reform of criminal justice; This is an excellent event for any criminal justice or law students to attend, as well as anyone interested in this issue! As a bonus we will be unveiling our brand new platform policies at this meeting!
