Is Scotland ready for smart justice? We hosted our second national event: Smart Justice Fest ’19. A festival of debate, discussion and dance.
Our Second Chancers campaign explores positivity, hope, aspiration and chaos through the lens of people with experience of the justice system. It gives a voice to people who have been let down and rejected, who have pulled themselves up and fought for better. Who have grabbed a second chance.
At our very first national event we explored the theme ‘Rewriting Scotland’s Story’. We brought together some world-renowned speakers who shared their own stories and experience about leadership, influence, inequality, smart justice and our future.
