Remarks made at Bennett College Charter Day
I'm humbled to be here today, at my mother's alma mater, a place she always spoke of with such reverence and pride. Hearing from her the history of this institution, about the role it has played in changing the conscience of our nation, and to be standing here in this storied chapel, in the very room where Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, and Dr. King spoke before me – I can only say, I am awed.

Recognizing a Decade of Progress at SMART
For the past 10 years, the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) has been at the forefront of implementing effective practices to register and manage sex offenders. Since our inception, we’ve helped 17 states, 99 tribes, and three territories to substantially implement SORNA’s requirements. One of our most significant accomplishments over the past 10 years is commissioning the development of the Sex Offender Management Assessment and Planning Initiative (SOMAPI).

The Many Victims of Wrongful Convictions
Last week, I had the privilege of hearing from seven remarkable individuals about their experiences as victims of wrongful convictions. For both original victims and exonerees, wrongful convictions represent an unspeakable miscarriage of justice, one for which few remedial services are available. We have a responsibility to prevent these tragic failures and address the collateral harm associated with them. Hearing from those who are most directly affected is vital if we hope to prevent other innocent people from suffering the same injustice, indignity, and pain.
