🌹 Open Sentencing helps expose bias and empowers public defenders to address racial disparities in the judicial system directly. People in the Black community are faced with harsher downstream effects than other races for similar sentences. This tool will analyze case information and provide defenders with insights, bias indicators, and connections. We can also use this to see trends and bias from the criminal justice system. This is part of the Call for Code for Racial Justice project at IBM.
