Justice Reform: Treatment, Not Jail

NASW New York State

6-7 p.m.

The Treatment Not Jail campaign has drawn together diverse stakeholders who bring many perspectives to efforts in New York state to reform the justice system by expanding and reforming existing judicial diversionary programs.

This presentation will describe some of the issues with existing programs, propose a framework for addressing such issues, provide key insight into current legislation proposed to reform diversion courts in a strategic manner, and promote better efforts to address social equity throughout the process. This proposal addresses key diversity issues with existing diversion programs- existing disparities disproportionately impact people with varying immigration status, people with mental illness, people who have other disabilities, and people from disproportionately impacted communities.

This presentation will also tie these efforts to ethical standards as described by the NASW Code of Ethics.
