Steven R. Donziger "is a leading national expert on crime policy and youth violence. He was the former Director of the National Criminal Justice Commission, a private body composed of 34 national and international leaders in the field of criminal justice. In 1996, the Commission produced the first comprehensive study of crime policy in America since the Kerner Commission in 1968. The results of their study were released as a book, The Real War on Crime (Harper Collins, 1996). Since its publication, Mr. Donziger has often appeared on national television and radio shows and has been quoted in many newspapers and magazines.

"In the 1980's, Mr. Donziger worked as a journalist for United Press International and free-lance for four years, filing more than 150 stories from Central America. In 1991, he received his J.D. from Harvard Law School and then worked as a trial attorney for the District of Columbia Public Defender Service in Washington, DC, where he represented juveniles and adults in criminal court. He currently practices criminal defense law and international environmental law in New York City." [1]
