St. Petersburg College has made criminal justice reform the topic of an upcoming forum at its Seminole campus. State senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Pete) is the featured speaker.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, Brandes — who chairs the Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice and also serves as vice-chair of the Criminal Justice Committee — leads the discussion, alongside two other panelists: Neil Volz of Florida Rights Restoration Coalition and Greg Newburn, state policy director for Families Against Mandatory Minimums.

The trio is expected to focus on legislation under consideration by the Florida Legislature.

Online registration for the forum, which is free and open to the public, isn't mandatory. But it is requested, so attendees might as well to ensure a seat.
