Action Items: Mass Incarceration

How do we address mass incarceration in the U.S.? These action items offer some ways and suggestions to get involved.


In the Encounter video, Jeannie Alexander offers some suggestions on how to address mass incarceration in our communities. 
 

She says you can get involved with restorative justice organizations: 

  1. Children's Defense Fund
  2. Restorative Justice (A part of the Centre for Justice & Reconciliation)
  3. No Exceptions Prison Collective 
  4. Find an organization that you can work with in your community
     

She also talks about using your political voice responsibly:

Educate others:

  • Start a "justice circle" or a book club that focuses on mass incarceration
  • Try suggesting new models of justice in places that you have influence like your home or church
  • Share on social media the facts about the mass incarceration problem in the U.S.


Together, we can begin to address mass incarceration.
