Presidential Justice Forum @ Benedict College
Oct 25 @ 9:00 am – Oct 27 @ 3:00 pm

A Bipartisan Forum of Presidential Candidates Exclusively Focused on Criminal Justice Reform

About this Event

The 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center is hosting a bipartisan forum on the campus of Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, on October 25, 26 and 27, 2019, where all presidential candidates have been invited to present their criminal justice reform platforms, setting forth specific and articulable policy proposals with measurable results to be achieved by 2024. With the landmark First Step Act passing in late 2018, we are calling upon all candidates to answer: what’s the “Second Step?”

To date there has been no debate, town hall or forum exclusively focused on criminal justice reform that has forced the presidential candidates speak in depth about their proposals for reform. 20/20 is uniquely positioned to hold its second forum of this kind including both parties’ candidates, as we are the only national Black bipartisan organization that includes law enforcement and activists, judges, prosecutors and public defenders, state and local elected officials, educators and students, formerly incarcerated individuals and other community leaders.

CO-HOSTS

Columbia Mayor, Stephen K. Benjamin
National Black Police Association
African American Mayors Association
National Black Caucus, Local Elected Officials
National Black Caucus of State Legislators

CONFIRMED TO ATTEND

Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Cory Booker, Secretary Julian Castro, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Congressman John Delaney
