ACLU Social Justice Conference 2012 by Laura Saponara

Criminal Justice and Drug Policy

The ACLU advocates for a criminal justice system that fosters public safety by reducing over-incarceration and recidivism. We work to ensure that constitutional rights apply to all, regardless of race, ethnicity or economics. We also challenge broken death penalty systems, confront illegal police practices, and advocate for drug policy reform.
