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.

Thursday Night

I'm not quite sure what to be excited about, or is this all a dream...

The Democratic National Committee is coming to town for the convention. Hopefully, we will have the whole election thing right by then. The time of the rubberstamp Congress over Iraq seems to have come to a screeching halt. Stem cell research and raising the minimum wage both passed in the House, and Bill Ritter admitted that we have a prison crisis in our state that is hurting education and health care. It's also cool to be an environmental leader.

It's that kind of dream you just don't want to wake up from and know that you will. But don't pinch me yet, I'm going to enjoy this for as long as I can.
