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.

New Blog on Criminal Policy

I listed this over the weekend in our blogroll after being alerted by Doug Berman over at Sentencing Law and Policy and Michael at Corrections Sentencing.

Here's a taste of what they have going on...

For a decade there has been a "debate" in the criminal justice academic community on participation in the making of crime policy. I put debate in quotations because only one side has been heard, namely, that the profession should be involved; but the silent position, so far, has more or less prevailed. Our involvement is at best marginal, and we have not been players in the game of crime policy making. It is time to reconsider.

In 1994 Gregg Barak wrote: "The Silences of (criminologists) on such domestic issues of crime, criminal justice, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, welfare, health care, and education is deafening." (He) called for criminal justice educators to actively intercede in the process, and his essay seemed to ignite a consideration of the issue. Many essays and papers followed, and one consequence has been the move of the national office of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in 1997 to Washington, D.C.
