The US incarcerates more people per capita than any other country in the world, and incarceration is acutely and disproportionately concentrated among communities of color.

Learn about mass incarceration’s history, scope, and impact; its connections to the War on Drugs and the legacy of slavery; and the exciting movements and strategies being deployed to dismantle it.
