Rochester, New York
It was a big year for Measures for Justice. We launched our Data Portal with six states and we learned a lot about how people can use the data and what they need. For those of you who have reached out to us, thank you for your stories and help. Millions of people are affected by the criminal justice system every day; we need to be helping them by equipping system practitioners with the best information possible. We can do this by closing the data gap. By getting the data out there. By helping people make more informed decisions.
Next we have set our sights high and are working hard to get 20 states in the Portal by 2020. We're automating and streamlining and putting strategies in place to process an enormous amount of data.
Happily, we are making good progress towards 20 x 2020 and look forward to releasing new states next year in tandem with a new look for the Portal that will make it easier to use and will offer more services. New year, new look, new states. Hopefully, too, even more news from you all about how you're using the Portal and what we can do to make your experience better.
Finally, we're endlessly grateful for all the support we've gotten this year. 2018 is going to be even bigger for us, in large part because of everyone who believes that bringing more transparency to the criminal justice system is a national imperative.
Enjoy the holidays. And thanks again.
