Our nation leads the world in incarceration -- more prisoners than China, a higher rate than Singapore and Iran. Let's do more to build communities through prevention, rehabilitation, and opportunity.
The American justice system is hyper-focused on incarceration as the solution to public problems. What about crime prevention? What about rehabilitation? What about job opportunities? There are cheaper, fairer ways to keep families safe than locking people up for years on end for even modest offenses. We need stronger communities, not ever-increasing incarceration. Beyond Bars use video and social media to make that case.
