Leigh Goodmark Highlights Heightened Risks in Responses to Crime

Former Fellow Leigh Goodmark (’95), the author of Decriminalizing Domestic Violence: A Balanced Policy Approach to Intimate Partner Violence, coauthored an op-ed in the Daily News (“Domestic Violence Is Also a Virus: During the Coronavirus Crisis, We Need the Right Criminal Justice Response to the Crime,” March 26). “The pandemic has put a spotlight on the perils of the United States’ decades-long addiction to using criminal law as a primary solution to social problems,” Leigh wrote.
