The Association of Public Interest Law (APIL) is excited to present a discussion on “Criminal Justice Reform” with Soffiyah Elijah. This will be an opportunity to learn about the current state of the criminal justice system and why it is important to create a fairer and more humane criminal justice system. Ms. Elijah will talk about how incarceration affects families and our communities as well as discuss some of the new and promising alternatives to incarceration.

She is the first woman and the first person of color to lead the nearly 170-year old organization in its mission to create a fairer and more humane criminal justice system. Ms. Elijah has dedicated her life to human rights and social activism, and is a frequent presenter at national and international forums on criminal justice policy and human rights issues.

An accomplished advocate, attorney, scholar, and educator, Ms. Elijah has practiced criminal and family law for more than 30 years. Prior to leading the Correctional Association, Ms. Elijah served as Deputy Director and Clinical Instructor at the Criminal Justice Institute at Harvard Law School. Before moving to Harvard, she was a member of the faculty and Director and Supervising Attorney of the Defender Clinic at the City University of New York School of Law.
