The series on Confronting Racial Injustice: Achieving Racial Equity in Hawaii continues with a webinar on Data & The Criminal Justice System on Friday, Jan. 29, from noon to 1 p.m. The event is free and the public is encouraged to participate via Zoom.

Data has been recognized as being central to efforts to improve the criminal justice system and identify inequities. In 2018, the HCR134 Criminal Pretrial Task Force conducted an in-depth study of Hawaii’s pretrial criminal justice system, and identified the need for broad-based research on how the system operates and its impacts through the collection and analysis of data.

Register here for a conversation around historical and current efforts to build a more just criminal justice system through the use of data.

Associate Justice Sabrina McKenna will provide introductory remarks followed by the presentation by:

  • Willie Bagasol, Supervising Deputy Public Defender (moderator)
  • Steven Alm, Honolulu City Prosecutor and former Circuit Court Judge
  • Dr. Erin Harbinson, Executive Director, Criminal Justice Research Institute
  • Dr. RaeDeen Keahiolalo, Principal at Magma LLC
