The Power of the Criminal Justice System
When is it reasonable to have your power taken away through decisions made by our criminal justice system? According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are about 2.2 million people incarcerated in American jails and prisons, making the United States the nation with the highest prison population rate in the world, higher even than Iran, Cuba, China, and Russia.

In this fifth webinar in the Power to the People series from the Center for Civic Education, Hernandez Stroud, Counsel for the Justice Program of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, explains the power of the American criminal justice system.

The Power of the Criminal Justice System webinar is designed especially for teachers of civics, government, and U.S. history who want to better understand the criminal justice system, but everyone is welcome to attend.

The Power to the People webinar series is sponsored by the Center for Civic Education, Kansas State University, and the Indiana Bar Foundation.
