Governor Kate Brown granted more commutations or pardons than all of Oregon’s governors over the last 50 years combined. Before her election as Oregon's governor, Brown worked as a lawyer representing families and children in the foster care system and those who violated their parole, and has stated that “We are a nation of second chances.” Please join the Institute of Politics for a moderated discussion with the former Governor of Oregon and IOP Visiting Fellow Kate Brown on mass incarceration.

This event is co-sponsored by the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management at the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy at Harvard Kennedy School.
