Over-incarceration — and the lingering disability frequently following it — disproportionately impacts communities of color and unjustly denies people the right to earn a decent living, secure affordable housing, and more.
The Criminal Justice Reform Task Force was formed to reduce the mass incarceration of indigent people by targeting the broken elements of the criminal justice system that perpetuate the school-to-prison pipeline and over-policing. Currently, our Task Force is working on ending the practice of out-of-school suspensions for our youngest students in Pittsburgh Public Schools as well as advocating for more counselors in the school setting.
