The ACLU Report: The Real Cost Of Operation Rio Grande, a Panel Conversation
The one-year anniversary of Operation Rio Grande in August 2018 generated conflicting reviews. Backers cited safer streets and people rebuilding their lives, while detractors criticized the large number of arrests and lack of drug treatment options.
the ACLU of Utah and Smart Justice Utah took a closer look at the numbers and reality behind Operation Rio Grande and generated a report called Calculating The Real Cost Of Operation Rio Grande.
On October 18, 2018 at Centro Civico Mexicano, The RadioActive team of Lara Jones and Billy Palmer moderated a panel conversation based on the report.
