Criminal Justice Reform
A just criminal justice system treats everyone equally, punishes crime proportionally, and affords due process under the law to all. It also recognizes the potential of all people to transform their lives and contribute to society, ensures that the opportunity for rehabilitation accompanies punishment and provides second chances to those who deserve them. Unfortunately, today’s criminal justice system is far from that ideal. It criminalizes poverty and disproportionately harms minorities and low-income communities. We want to change that.
