Criminal Justice

We Need an Attitude Shift for Criminal Justice Reform

The U.S. has 5% of the world’s population, but holds almost 25% of the world’s prisoners. The racial makeup in our prisons is also disproportionate. Black people represent 12% of the U.S. adult population, but 33% of the prison population, while white individuals make up 64% of the adult population and 30% of prisoners. Donors can play a critical role in advancing criminal justice reform, from ending mass incarceration to addressing disparities.
