Moving Beyond Awareness: The Role of Constituent Advocacy for Creating Effective Criminal Justice Reform
Andrea C. James
Our criminal justice system is broken. Its policies and outcomes are racist and punitive, with no attention paid to challenging the social injustices that contribute to overflowing prisons. What can we, as UUs dedicated to justice, do about it? Andrea James, author of Upper Bunkies Unite and Other Thoughts on the Politics of Mass Incarceration and co-founder of Families for Justice as Healing, will offer some suggestions for our involvement in reforming our broken system.
