Blueprints to End Mass Incarceration from the ACLU

Mass incarceration is a nationwide problem, and the ACLU is releasing a blueprint for all 50 states and the District of Colombia to combat this practice that deepens racial injustice, tears families apart, and upends millions of lives.

“The ACLU Campaign for Smart Justice is an unprecedented, multiyear effort to reduce the U.S. jail and prison population by 50 percent and to combat racial disparities in the criminal justice system. We are working in all 50 states for reforms to usher in a new era of justice in America. The ACLU Campaign for Smart Justice is fighting in the legislatures, the courts, and in the streets to end mass incarceration.” Read more about the program here and look at the blueprint for Maryland criminal justice reform here.
