Over two million people are incarcerated in the U.S. Because of discriminatory public policies across education, employment, and criminal and juvenile justice systems, low-income people of color are disproportionately represented. CLASP addresses the intended and unintended consequences of these policies, targeting our advocacy to the communities most affected and federal and state policymakers. We lift up community and state solutions; promote effective investment strategies; and address educational and employment inequities that create pipelines to incarceration. CLASP also works to reduce collateral consequences for people already involved in the justice system.
