New Jersey has the worst racial disparity in incarceration rates for black and white residents in the nation, (ACLU). People of color are arrested and sentenced at vastly disproportionate rates compared to white New Jerseyans. While the laws that govern our criminal justice system are often intended to be race-neutral, in practice they are not.
This action comes from our allies at the ACLU of New Jersey.
