The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law joined other civil rights and criminal justice reform advocacy organizations on a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee leadership, supporting the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2017.
The Brennan Center as a member of the #NYCAlgorithms Coalition Campaign wrote a letter to Mayor de Blasio offering recommendations for appointments to the new Automated Decision System Task Force in New York City.
The Center and 31 organizations have joined forces to protest bill H.R. 4478. This amended piece of legislation not only inadequately addresses the surveillance abuses that have occurred under Section 702, but risks expanding them.
On December 6th, the Brennan Center will submit testimony to the North Carolina Senate Select Committee on Judicial Reform and Redistricting, reviewing methods of judicial selection in the states and providing recommendations for reform.
