Criminal Justice Reform

The criminal justice reform caucus promotes awareness of social inequity, racial and socioeconomic disparities, punitive policies, and mass incarceration evident in historical and current judicial, correctional, and law enforcement institutions. The purpose is for social workers to prevent and eliminate the exploitation of, and discrimination against marginalized and oppressed groups in our community. The goal is for holistic interventions, addressing social, environmental, and political determinants when working with those involved in the criminal justice system.
