This program is but one part of an ongoing systemic revolution in directly addressing the racial and ethnic disparity in Multnomah County's criminal justice system. By critically analyzing the Relative Rate Index (RRI) data\, that is\, the rates at which persons of color are disproportionately arrested and referred for prosecution for certain crimes\, Multnomah County has been able to intelligently craft policies to dramatically impact this disparity and create an ever more just system.\n\n One-hour panel discussion to begin at 5:30 pm\, with a 30 minute Q&A and reception to follow.
