Join us online or in person for a discussion on how to transform the way the criminal justice system and police respond to people with serious mental illness.

Minnesota can reduce incarceration and improve police performance by taking mental health seriously. Sound far-fetched? It’s happening in Miami-Dade County where Judge Steve Leifman has transformed the way the criminal justice system and police respond to people with serious mental illness. A remarkable conversation with Attorney General Keith Ellison, Minneapolis Commissioner of Community Safety Dr. Cedric Alexander, Norm Ornstein, lawmakers, mental health experts, and Judge Leifman will identify how Minnesota can join the revolution in public safety– saving lives and money.
