Join experts from Measures for Justice and the Rochester Police Department (RPD) for a discussion about the use of criminal justice and enforcement data. Learn more about how RPD creatively uses enforcement data for predictive analysis and correlating the effects programs and actions have on existing data. Based in Rochester NY, Measures for Justice is a nonprofit organization that collects, cleans, and publishes comparative data on how local criminal justice systems are delivering basic services across the country. In this interactive session, Measures for Justice will share what we’ve learned about the state of criminal justice data inside the US, explore our work to help make those systems more transparent, and answer your questions about best data practices.
  Public libraries provide communities with access to computers and the internet while their doors are open and 24/7 wifi access in the vicinity of the building. But what happens to those who aren't able to get to the library & don't have internet access at home? We all know that the digital divide is a real issue but what can we do to work towards equitable internet access for all? Andrea Snyder will provide both theory and practical information about how we can work towards equitable internet access for all, including advocacy, community awareness building, and practical programs. She will speak about her work with the Finger Lakes Digital Inclusion Coaltion as well as with the public libraries in the rural communities of Western New York State.   The dawn of the 4th Industrial Revolution is here, and the world has an opportunity to create infrastructure for equity. This breakout session will focus on how a collective mission-driven strategy brings focus to how local and global collaboration can unify rather than divide citizens.
