The criminal justice system is widely inattentive towards the successful rehabilitation of the incarcerated, often seen as punitive or racist. For-profit prison lobbyist push legislative attention and policy away from those who need it most, resulting in a lopsided over funding of prison construction and under-funding of drug treatment, educational programs, violence prevention programs and mental health.
The 28ers is partnering with All of Us Or None to showcase Code, an educational and informative film on how to manage inmates with mental disorders. Please join our free event and learn more about how money in politics affects criminal justice policy!
