Who is the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition?

Our mission is to reverse the trend of mass incarceration in Colorado. We are a coalition of nearly 7,000 individual members and over 100 faith and community organizations who have united to stop perpetual prison expansion in Colorado through policy and sentence reform.

Our chief areas of interest include drug policy reform, women in prison, racial injustice, the impact of incarceration on children and families, the problems associated with re-entry and stopping the practice of using private prisons in our state.

If you would like to be involved please go to our website and become a member.

The Circle Game

One of my favorite writers is Alan Prendergast from the Westword, read this compelling post from his blog, and if you have the time to look through his ongoing series on prisons, it's really wonderful. The link to those is posted on the left panel under "Our favorite links". Thanks Alan.
