On Wednesday, April 21 at 7 pm, Amy Bach, the founder of Rochester-based Measures for Justice, will be speaking at a Geneseo-sponsored Zoom Webinar about her organization, which she founded to apply data analytics to the measurement of outcomes in the nation’s criminal courts. The organization's motto is: No Data. No Change.

Amy has grown this organization from basically herself and an assistant sitting at a kitchen table into a formidable not-for-profit employing several dozen researchers, analysts, and lawyers.

It’s a great social-justice entrepreneurship success story and a terrific example of the application of data analytics to what many might consider an unlikely subject.

You can learn more about Measures for Justice on their website.
