We want fewer kids entering youth or adult prisons, more kids kept closer to home, trauma-informed programming, and a path to redemption for those who can prove they merit a second chance.
We want lower prison and jail populations – with effective, community-based treatment and supervision, and fairness in sentencing – as well as safer prison conditions and more opportunities for a successful reentry.
We want to stem the tide of women’s incarceration, improve their conditions of confinement and expand their access to services, and help women safely and successfully return to their families and communities.

It offers recommendations to end the chronic pattern that wastes lives and squanders resources that could be better used to address the factors leading to homelessness.
