The International Justice Exchange (IJE) Educational Campaign aims to engage the public and justice system stakeholders in a critical exchange of ideas centered around the concept of a renewed justice reinvestment initiative in Connecticut that will benefit not only victims and persons who are incarcerated and their families, but justice system staff and the entire state at large. The educational campaign involves a series of presentations to state agencies and legislative stakeholders, webinars, facilitation of community conversations, film screenings, and the production of policy papers.
