FSU’s Project on Accountable Justice Hosts Public Forum Focused
on Georgia’s Criminal and Juvenile Justice Reform Measures

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, The Florida State University’s Project on Accountable Justice (PAJ) and St. Petersburg College Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions in partnership with The James Madison Institute will host a public forum titled, “A Tale of Two States: What Can Florida Learn From Georgia’s Criminal and Juvenile Justice Reforms?” Recognizing each state is unique and we all have the desire to improve the justice system for the better, this forum gives an opportunity for states to learn from each other.
The public is invited to join Florida policymakers in learning how Georgia turned a formidable and politically-charged challenge posed by Gov. Nathan Deal into the state’s proud, non-partisan opportunity to re-engineer its criminal and juvenile justice systems to advance public safety, save money and save lives. This event is free and open to the public; RSVP is recommended.WHO: Panel moderated by Dr. Bob McClure, President and CEO of The James Madison Institute
