Criminal Justice

The Public Policy Project actively advocates for legislative and policy measures designed to reduce mass incarceration in the federal and state systems.

The Public Policy Project leads the Civil Rights Coalition on Police Reform, comprised of numerous civil and human rights organizations united against police abuse, excessive use of force, and the targeting of poor and minority of communities by law enforcement across the country. The Coalition is in regular contact with White House and Department of Justice officials regarding ongoing widely-publicized killings and excessive use of force by police in Ferguson, Missouri, Staten Island, New York, South Carolina and Baltimore, Maryland. Most recently, the Coalition sent a letter of support with over 70 signatories calling for the Department of Justice to initiate a pattern and practice investigation of the Baltimore Police Department in the wake of the killing of Freddie Gray while in police custody. The Department announced the investigation just a few days later.
