Movements for criminal justice, policing, and prisons reform

Efforts to make the American justice system more just and equitable are not new, but have gathered momentum as a result of ongoing problems with police-on-black violence, and even efforts within the Trump administration to implement sentencing reforms. Recent concern for inmates in overcrowded prisons during the pandemic have also prompted a renewed look at how crimes are appropriately punished, and increasingly, communities are experimenting with alternatives to prison for non-violent offenses as the true cost of America's failed war on drugs becomes clear.
