Policy Briefs

JustLeadershipUSA was founded on the belief that those closest to the problem are closest to the solution. We work to ensure directly impacted Leaders have the resources and tools that enable them to drive policy reforms that will cut the United States correctional population in #halfby2030. 

Knowledge is one of the greatest tools when advocating for criminal justice reform. Knowing that the United States currently incarcerates nearly 2.3 million people or that 4.5 million people are on probation or parole is the first step towards decarceration and cutting the correctional population in #halfby2030. Below you will find a repository of downloadable briefs curated by our Policy Team explaining our findings and recommendations on various national and statewide policies. We hope Leaders across the country use them as a resource in their advocacy efforts.
