Summary of Select Reports & Papers on Criminal Justice Reform


To assist advocates and organizers in their work to end mass incarceration, Katal conducted an analysis and synthesis of over 30 recent criminal justice reform papers, reports, and reform tools, including the National Research Council’s Growth of Incarceration in the United States. Repeated recommendations throughout the reports revealed that there are key reforms that can be implemented at the local level that don't require state or federal policy reform, yet would contribute significantly to reducing the number of people incarcerated in jails and prisons or kept under correctional supervision.
