Share Your Story with the ACLU's #SmartJustice Campaign
Across Arizona, people are being mistreated by Arizona's criminal justice system. Some have been unfairly targeted as a result of prosecutorial misconduct. Some are being jailed or forced to plead guilty because of an unjust cash bail system which strips people of their rights. Others are stuck behind bars long after it's safe for them to return home because extreme laws mandate lengthy sentences with little to no regard for the individual circumstances of one's crimes. These practices are fueling Arizona's mass incarceration crisis and it's hurting our families and communities.
We are interested in hearing from people across Arizona who’ve experienced the harsh ramifications of mass incarceration. Join us by sharing your own experience or your family’s experience. Help us reduce the prison population by 50 percent and stop racial disparities in the criminal justice system. We may follow up with you for more information. Please review our disclaimer below.
