The Marshall Project: Shedding Light and Heat on Criminal (in)Justice
Price CSI Social Innovators Seminar
The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and its criminal justice system is irretrievably broken. Neil Barsky will discuss the challenges of creating a new, prize-winning non-profit journalism organization to elevate the need for criminal justice reform in the national conscience, and whether (and if so, how) the Marshall Project can move the needle on justice reform.

He has been a newspaper reporter (The Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News), equity research analyst (Morgan Stanley), hedge fund manager (Midtown Capital, Alson Capital) and documentary film director (“Koch”).
