IPSSJ Advocates for Racial Equity in Public Conviction Registry

The Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice (IPSSJ) at Adler University was featured on WGLT, the NPR station from Illinois State University, in a story about racial disparities in public conviction registries.

The Institute joined the Chicago 400, the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation and other criminal justice advocacy organizations in issuing a statement calling for the suspension of housing limits for registrants. Data shows glaring racial disparities in how these housing limits affect registrants, especially Black men.
