A Vision to End Mass Incarceration in New Jersey

December 13, 2017

Following decades of punitive policies that have sent millions to prison and devastated communities in every state, a national reevaluation of the criminal justice system has taken root. A growing number of community, faith, and political leaders on the right and the left agree: the nation’s addiction to mass incarceration must end.

We must seize this historic opportunity to address the unprecedented scope of the mass incarceration crisis. With this vision, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey sets forth a plan to dramatically reduce New Jersey’s incarcerated population.
