America's criminal justice system undermines the promise of who we can and should be.
America’s criminal justice system locks up too many people for too long, preventing millions of Americans from reaching their full potential.
Our criminal justice system poses one of the greatest challenges confronting our country today. This bloated, predatory system comes at significant cost to taxpayers at the local, state, and federal level even as it fails to make us safer or create more opportunity. It causes substantial harm, especially to communities of color and poor people, and the damage spreads far beyond those incarcerated. It strips basic rights and opportunity from entire families and communities with effects felt across generations. In sum, our current criminal justice system undermines the promise of what America can and should be.
We want to safely and significantly reduce the jailed and imprisoned population.
Over-criminalization not only affects those in jail, but also their families, their employers, and their communities. We want to safely shrink the number of those impacted.
We want to drive policy reform to help restore and protect the millions of families affected by the criminal justice system.
