#TransformPrison: A Roundtable on Prison Research and Innovation

Please join the Urban Institute for the launch of the Prison Research and Innovation Initiative, a comprehensive effort to build evidence and spur innovation to make prisons more humane, safe, and rehabilitative environments. Hear from a roundtable of people who have experienced incarceration, researchers, corrections professionals, advocates, and other thought leaders to discuss existing research on prison practices, policies, and culture as well as gaps in data and knowledge.

Our goal is to identify the evidence needed to support transparency, accountability, and innovation in prisons and improve the lives of people who live and work in them.
