Race + Justice: Pittsburgh

June 14 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am EDT

When it comes to criminal justice reform, Pittsburgh is at a crossroads.

On one hand, crime rates are falling and local leaders have made strides toward a fairer and more equitable criminal justice system.

And yet, incarceration numbers are still high, especially for black men. In March, protesters flooded the streets after a white police officer was acquitted in the killing of Antwon Rose Jr., an African American teenager, in East Pittsburgh.

What comes next for criminal justice in Pittsburgh? In this morning summit, The Atlantic will talk with community leaders, criminal justice experts, and public officials about Pittsburgh’s criminal justice system. We will discuss the city’s reaction to the Rose killing, as well as the massacre last fall at the Tree of Life Synagogue. And we will discuss what a better system would look like.
