WHAT REALLY KEEPS US SAFE?
Real Safety = Investing in
For decades , the United States has been overspending on prisons under the mistaken idea that punishing and incarcerating people is what keeps communities safe.
It doesn’t. It breaks apart families and communities, especially communities of color, and it is taking opportunity away from our young people.
It’s time to defund prisons and invest in people!
