Summary: Smart justice efforts that aim to reduce unnecessary incarceration while improving public safety are garnering bipartisan support and becoming a more relevant issue in communities across America. Many chambers of commerce are involved in a range of smart justice initiatives, including reinvestment of taxpayer dollars, evidence-based prevention efforts, and encouraging businesses to hire individuals with criminal records. This 2017 survey was designed to help gain understanding in chamber involvement in smart justice reform efforts, including engaging businesses in fair chance hiring (i.e., open and fair hiring practices that expand employment opportunities for individuals with criminal records and help them contribute to the local economy). This survey was administered by ACCE's Education Attainment Division and more information or technical support is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
