Over the past two decades the politics of law and order in New York City have changed dramatically. Where once candidates for office vied to appear the toughest on crime, they now compete to carry the banner of reform. Join The Marshall Project contributing writer Tom Robbins, author Kim Phillips-Fein, and law enforcement professional Edwin Raymond to examine how NYC’s widening inequality will impact crime and whether the rhetoric of criminal justice reform matches the reality in the city. The discussion will be led by Carroll Bogert, president of The Marshall Project.
