How Does Your State Rank on Mass Incarceration?
WHAT WE DOWe’re pushing the MOVEMENT to end the absurd patterns in why and how we incarcerate. To make it more sensible and fair. To correct and to repair, and to restore futures and families. Our work includes:
- Public Awareness, Facts and Information
- Linking Actions and Resources for Reform
- Individualized Rehabilitation and Family Repair
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE IN A DEMOCRACY?
More than 11,000,000 Americans who have served their time, even for so-called “non-violent” crimes are denied access to decent and fair housing options. Tens of thousands of them, including mothers and veterans, end up living on streets and under bridges.
75% ARE NOT GIVEN A FAIR CHANCE
Employers that give a second chance to workers with past crime records report that once shown patience, empathy and training, they are up to 14% less likely to miss work and they produce as much as 10% more worker output.
Old useless policies will remain in the way unless you help finance this movement for Smart Public Safety!
