Join us on Wednesday, March 31st at 3:00pm pm EDT/12:00pm PDT to hear from system stakeholders in three jurisdictions who have used innovative approaches to reduce their backlogs. This webinar will be presented by Keir Bradford-Grey, Chief Defender of Philadelphia; Hon. Spencer Merriweather, III, District Attorney of Charlotte-Mecklenburg; Hon. Mary E. Triggiano, Chief Judge, Milwaukee County; and Holly Szablewski, District Court Administrator, Milwaukee County. The presenters will share their experiences and expertise in managing their backlogs during the pandemic, including policy shifts, the use of pre-entry advocates to connect individuals to appropriate services without criminal justice system involvement, and proceeding with jury trials during this unprecedented time.
