Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow


What we do

Awareness-Raising

Wehost monthly and annual forums, summits, and conferences to raise awareness andunderstanding of mass incarceration, systemic and institutional racism. Ourmonthly meetings inform the public of community and state programs and initiativesaimed at alleviating poverty and racial disparities, fostering equitableeconomic development, and creating safer and better connected communities.

Advocacy

Weadvocate for changes in state and local policy to rectify the effects of massincarceration, institutional racism, and economic inequality. This includessupporting fair policing practices, progressive economic policy, livable wages,and communities that value diversity, inclusion, and equity.

Racial Healing

Theeffects of institutional, structural, and interpersonal racism are perniciousand long lasting. People of color (this includes Black people, Latinos, Asians,and Native Americans) have long suffered the effects of  social andeconomic racial discrimination. The Coalition believes that it is necessary forpeople of all races to acknowledge the need for racial healing and collectivelywork towards a just society. We do this through educational activities andempathy building programs.
