WHAT IS MASS INCARCERATION?!?
–> The U.S. puts more people behind bars than any other country in the world & we aren’t locking up just anybody.
WHO ARE WE LOCKING UP?
–> PEOPLE OF COLOR – 1 in 3 African-American men and 1 out of 6 Latino men will got to prison/jail in their lifetime vs 1 out of 17 white men.
–> FOLKS W/MENTAL ILLNESS – There are 10x more people with serious mental illness in Arizona jails/prisons than AZ hospitals.
–> FOLKS W/ADDICTION – 77% of people in AZ jails have a significant drug addiction.
MASS INCARCERATION IS TEARING OUR COMMUNITIES APART
& WE NEED MASS ACTION TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITIES WHOLE.
