Steinberg’s remarks will constitute CJI’s Trailblazer Lecture, designed to honor and learn from persons who have made a significant impact in the area of criminal justice and the keynote lecture for the Systemic Justice Project.
As the founder and Executive Director of the Bronx Defenders, Steinberg transformed the Bronx Defenders into one of the country’s leading indigent defense service providers. Under her visionary leadership, eight lawyers and an idea transformed into a 250-member organization that represents over 35,000 people annually. The model of holistic defense pioneered by the Bronx Defenders is now emulated by public defender offices across the country.
