NJ Spotlight News | October 16, 2020 | Social

The live part of the American Cities Rebuilding virtual conference has ended, but NJ Spotlight News will continue to post its talks and films over the coming days and weeks. The conference — taking place Oct. 14-16 and co-hosted by WNET, NJ Spotlight News and NJTV — examined the challenges and opportunities faced by cities in New Jersey and nationwide during this unprecedented time.

The second day’s program was led by this discussion about criminal justice reform between U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jack Ford, host of WNET’s Metrofocus and himself a former prosecutor.
