    How unequal is our legal system, and what can we do about it? What does research say about the relationships between race and law enforcement, incarceration, sentencing, and prisoner reentry? What local programs already support change? Find out with Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton, Professor Jelani Exum (University of Toledo College of Law), who studies the relationship between race and sentencing, Professor David Harding (U-M Dept. of Sociology, U-M Institute for Social Research), whose research interests include incarceration and prisoner reentry, and Timothy Threat, who will give a firsthand account of the challenges of reentry.
