Key Issue

Ending mass incarceration

AFSC works to promote healing – instead of punishment – in the U.S. criminal justice system. The United States currently has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world, disproportionately impacting poor people and people of color. We advocate for alternatives to incarceration, better reintegration after prison, an end to prison privatization, more humane conditions of confinement, and ultimately, the abolition of prisons.

In this pandemic, we must get people out of prisons, jails, and detention centers—and move toward a future without incarceration.
Protests across the U.S. are fueling the demand for divestment from policing—and investment in schools, health care, and transformative forms of justice that truly keep our communities safe. It's time to defund the police.
