For decades Oklahoma has led the nation and the world in incarceration. We’ve been number one in incarcerating women and people of color. Unjust racial disparities exists in the criminal legal system from policing to the prison population. While Black Americans make up just 8-13% of the population they represent anywhere from 25-30% of the prison population. We must act now so that the system of justice does not continue to wreak havoc on Oklahoma’s communities of color. Join us in a discussion on the issues and what you can do this legislative season to begin to rectify these wrongs.
