Bellingham City Club Program February 22, 2017
What Will it Take to Reduce Jail Over Crowding?

A large population of our over-crowded jail consists of people with behavioral problems.  Are there better solutions for this group?  Are we ready to serve our mentally ill population in a different way?  Our speakers will explore new funding proposals from the governor and the progress our local Incarceration Prevention and Reduction Task Force is making as they seek alternatives to jail time.

He has worked for the state legislature; was a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow with Senator George Mitchell, was special assistant to Governor Gardner for health, working on a wide range of issues such as expansion of Medicaid, the Department of Health, and the 1993 health reform law. He has head up the Herndon Alliance for eight years focusing on communications and coordination in support of passage and implementation of the ACA.

Jill Bernstein,  Co-Chair of the Incarceration Prevention and Reduction Task Force,  has been a lawyer since 1978she joined the Public Defenders office in 1982 and remained as a defense lawyer in public and private practice until retirement in 2010.  She served as president of the WA Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and just received the Pemberton Award from Law Advocates for her life time commitment to justice. She is a past president of the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County.
