Criminal Justice Reform

The U.S. has the largest prison population of any country in the world and the number of prisoners per capita has almost quadrupled since the 1970's. These alarming statics are a continuation of racist and classist policies, laws, and enforcement that negatively impact communities of color. Reforming the system is key to changing these numbers. If you are passionate about social and racial justice and having fair and fairly enforced laws that build healthier, safer communities and families, then this passion area is for you!
