CRIMINAL JUSTICE

The current contours of our criminal justice system are not equitable. They unfairly disadvantage low-income individuals and families as well as communities of color. Recent adjustments to mandatory minimums and some reentry programs will be beneficial, but more work is needed. The system as a whole must be viewed through a lens of addressing previous policy injustices with an eye towards policies that will make the system more equitable. We believe these policies should include expanded pretrial diversion programs, eliminating cash bail, clearly defined prisoners’ rights, and de-escalation and implicit bias training for law enforcement.
