Join our campaign to put Washington's elected officials at the forefront of ending mass incarceration and transforming America's criminal justice system.
The United States imprisons people at a level unmatched anywhere in the world—incarcerating too many people for too long and often for the wrong reasons. This destabilizes hundreds of thousands of American families and economically harms them and their communities. However, our addiction to incarceration does not touch all families and communities equally:
People Power activists will work to transform the criminal justice system in Washington by identifying the stances of elected officials and candidates and advocating for fair and just policies. We will learn more about legislation that lawmakers should support and how to engage with candidates directly to promote fair and effective alternatives to mass incarceration. By the next legislative session, we’ll be prepared to change Washington’s criminal justice system in ways that significantly and meaningfully improve people’s lives.
