Criminal Justice

ACLU NorCal advocates for a criminal justice system that fosters community safety by reducing incarceration and criminalization. We work to ensure that constitutional rights apply to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, economics, or involvement with the criminal justice system. We advocate for criminal law reforms, including pretrial, sentencing, and parole reforms, ending the death penalty, and ensuring that police and prosecutors are accountable to the communities that they serve.
