Mass incarceration is a big problem in America, but arts programs like can help. Only 5% of inmates who participate go back to prison. Compare that to our national average of 60%!

For more wisdom on the topic of violence & appropriate responses to it through a restorative lens, focusing on true accountability & healing the trauma of survivors, I really cannot recommend Daniele Sered's book, "Until We Reckon," highly enough.

The idea that prison is not a place for people charged with acts of violence or a solution to violence is so foreign & crazy to so many. But by any measure--rehabilitation, accountability, reducing recidivism, healing trauma for survivors, deterrence--prison just fails.

This year we worked w/ allies across the nation to pass 75 laws in the states that will lead to 1000s of fewer people incarcerated. From sentencing & bail reform to parole & prosecutorial reform, this was a monumental year in fight 2 end mass incarceration
