Volunteer Meetings – Thursday October 25, 2018 – Marc Hyden – More Criminal Justice Reform Needed

Franklin Roundtable Welcomes back

Marc Hyden

Regional Director, Southeastern United States at R Street Institute

Georgia Needs Additional Criminal Justice Reform

While Georgia has earned a well deserved reputation as a leader in criminal justice reform, Marc addresses the need for additional reforms that will make the state’s criminal justice system more just as well as more effective.

The R Street Institute is an American conservative and libertarian think tank headquartered in Washington, D.C.. The Institute’s stated mission is to “engage in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government.”

Marc Hyden is R Street’s Southeast region director. He is responsible for educating lawmakers and executive branch officials on R Street’s initiatives, testifying before legislative bodies, drafting op-eds, and representing R Street at political events

Marc joined R Street in February 2018. He comes most recently from Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty, a project of EJUSA, where he was a Senior Manager. Before that, he was a Campaign Field Representative with the National Rifle Association. Prior to his service with the NRA, Hyden was a Campaign Manager for a Republican congressional race in Western North Carolina. He also has served as the Legislative Liaison/Public Affairs Specialist with the State of Georgia and as the Legislative Aide to the Georgia Senate’s President Pro Tempore.

He is the author of 2017’s Gaius Marius: The Rise and Fall of Rome’s Saviour.

Marc graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in philosophy.

He lives in the metro Atlanta area.

The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men — 1776
Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.

Thomas Jefferson

Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 18 — 1781

And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.
