Federalist Society webinar to explore "The First Step Act: Is It Working and What’s Next?"

Tomorrow at noon EST, The Federalist Society is conducting this webinar titled "The First Step Act: Is It Working and What’s Next?". Here is the event's description and its speakers:

The First Step Act of 2018, passed as the result of bi-partisan efforts during the Trump administration, aimed to reduce the population of those in federal prison and to limit some federal prison sentences.  Over the years some have contended the act is working well, while others argue it has only partially delivered on its goals or it was flawed from the start.  Now, as the act recently celebrated its 5-year anniversary, join us for a panel discussing the First Step Act, its impact, legacy, and future.

  • Rafael A. Mangual, Fellow and Deputy Director of Legal Policy Contributing Editor, City Journal, The Manhattan Institute
  • (Moderator) Vikrant P. Reddy, Senior Fellow, Stand Together Trust
