2016 Policy Summit
Since CPR formed in March 2015, CPR has not only met with incarcerated people and their loved ones, but we have also met with correctional officers, MDOC administrators, members of the governor’s task force on private prisons, and representatives of our state’s major private prison corporation (MTC). Conversations with virtually all the significant stakeholders have informed our position on how Mississippi’s penal system operates.

On March 16, 2016, CPR held its First Annual Policy Summit. During the 2016 Policy Summit, CPR met with policy experts and legislators in order to reach consensus on whether to support or oppose potential reforms that are currently before the state legislature.
