"When the right conditions come along, success becomes inevitable."

In April of this year the Center for Court Innovation co-hosted a conference on community justice in San Francisco, CA that was attended by participants from jurisdictions all over the country, and representing ten different nations. The theme of the summit was finding new ways to approach criminal justice, moving away from mass incarceration and embracing sentencing alternatives.

One of the speakers was Gavin Newsom, the Mayor of San Francisco. He talks about companies that are using bottom-up/crowdsourcing strategies with success and how that is similar to the more holistic style of criminal justice being tested by organizations such as CCI (and BCS!). Here's a clip to the entire talk, I recommend it: Gavin Newsom on Community Justice
