Building State and Local Partnerships to Support Familiar Faces

Past Event
November 8, 2023, 2:00- 3:30pm , Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and Arnold Ventures

States are critical partners with local service systems in using data to identify and coordinate care for community members who have frequent contact with criminal legal systems, crisis and health care services, and housing systems. States can uniquely help local partners accelerate learning about implementing evidence-based practices and remove barriers and scale successful approaches across jurisdictions and geographies.

This webinar will address how New Mexico and Georgia draw on the strengths of multidisciplinary state and local practitioners and leaders to create sustainable collaboration, drive meaningful system change, and measure the impact of their efforts to inform future decisions. The discussion will be led by Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Boggs and New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Briana Zamora with state and local practitioners who are making policy changes in their states. Attendees will leave the webinar with practical ideas for building a broad state and local coalition to drive action on strategic policy priorities and strategies for measuring impact to build a foundation for sustaining political and funding support.


  • Chief Justice Michael Boggs, Georgia Supreme Court
  • Justice Briana Zamora, New Mexico Supreme Court
  • Additional state and local speakers are forthcoming
