The Sentencing Project

The mission of the Sentencing Project is clear. The non-profit, which was founded in 1986, "works for a fair and effective U.S. criminal justice system by promoting reforms in sentencing policy, addressing unjust racial disparities and practices, and advocating for alternatives to incarceration." On the site, readers will find a wealth of information about the current criminal justice system, as well as suggestions for reform. Readers may like to scout the the page by the categories of Sentencing Policy, Incarceration, Racial Disparity, Drug Policy, Juvenile Justice, Felony Disenfranchisement, Women, and Collateral Consequences. Each category features a continually updated wellspring of articles and resources. For instance, in the Collateral Consequences section, readers will find articles outlining politicians' actions (or inactions) on such topics as budget remedies for mass incarceration and the reclassification of some felony offenses to misdemeanors.
