Micah member Bruce Turnbull will present his experiences as an advocate for reform of the criminal legal system, working with both Jewish and multifaith organizations on a range of issues at the federal and state level. He will focus on why these issues are “Jewish” issues.
Retired after more than 40 years in private law practice, Bruce Turnbull is now an avid advocate for reform of the criminal legal system. He co-chairs the Criminal Justice Reform Initiative and is a member of the Board of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and chairs the Policy Committee and is a member of the Board of the Multifaith Initiative to End Mass Incarceration. Bruce represents JCPA and the Multifaith EMI on several Washington, DC-based coalitions advocating for reform of the criminal legal system. He is also Secretary of the Board of the Jews United for Justice Campaign Fund, a member of the Lawyers’ Committee of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and a member of the Board of the Bolechow Jewish Heritage Society.
Bruce and his wife, Susan Wolf Turnbull, reside in Bethesda, Maryland and are the proud parents of two adult sons and their wives and especially proud grandparents of four young grandchildren.
