Learn about criminal legal reform in Georgia and how to get involved in movements for change!

Are we in the middle of a crime wave? What does the data actually say? How can we build alternatives to policing and punishment? What’s happening in Georgia’s prisons, and how can we fix it? How can I get involved in efforts for criminal legal reform where I live?

NOTE:  If you are in the Middle Georgia area, please choose the Macon breakout room, which is being hosted by Bibb Mount Zion.
