According to the NAACP, African Americans now constitute nearly 1 million of the total 2.3 million incarcerated population while only accounting for 13% of the American population. The numbers are indicative of the need for change. The Illinois Legislative Black Caucus Foundation is hosting a Criminal Justice Symposium to explore different initiatives and search for solutions to end the disparities. The ILBCF will also be issuing its Criminal Justice report, which outlines the Black Caucus’ Legislative agenda for this General Assembly. We are looking forward to hearing your suggestions so we can move forward together.
