As the U.S. continues to imprison more people than any country in the world, momentum is growing for change. Now is the time to push for a real overhaul of the criminal justice system. Transformative and restorative justice approaches are less expensive, more effective, and more humane than mass incarceration—and justice is best served by helping people heal and preventing further harm.
AFSC has been central to healing justice struggles for decades. We offer these resources to help people learn more about the problem of mass incarceration and join our work to end it.
