The Alberta Criminal Justice Association (“ACJA”), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public and justice system stakeholders on topics that promote an informed, humane and equitable criminal justice system, has launched a free Webinar Series via Zoom that seeks to unite, educate and network stakeholders in both public and private spheres. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend as well. Our Webinars last for 50-60 minutes and are fully moderated by a member of the ACJA Webinar Committee to ensure quality and content (see disclaimers at bottom).
Your support of the ACJA is greatly appreciated. As an added thanks to our members, the volunteer ACJA Board will add content below for our members to access and download at any time. To become a member of the ACJA (automatic via membership with the CCJA) visit https://www.ccja-acjp.ca/pub/en/join/form/. For more information, you are welcome to contact a board member at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nb. The ACJA is currently looking for learned speakers who are interested and willing to donate their valuable time and insights to present on criminal justice issues. For more information, contact a board member at email@example.com.
