Justice for Black Lives: Reforming the Criminal Legal System

Black and Lantino/a/x people are overrepresented in the criminal legal system, and their children are disproportionately present in the parallel foster system. These systems marginalize low-income people, especially those of color, keep them in a cycle of poverty, and depress their lifetime economic stability. Join the Shriver Center on Poverty Law for a webinar to explore ways to keep communities safe and families together by advocating for policies that reduce the states’ reliance on jails and prison.
