The U.S. criminal justice system is rife with racial disparities. African Americans are over six times more likely to be imprisoned than whites, while Latinos are incarcerated at more than twice the white rate. Young black men are 13 times more likely to be imprisoned for drug offenses than young white men. Justice Strategies has documented the impact of current policies on communities of color and worked with advocates to craft reforms designed to safely lower levels of racial disparity in imprisonment.
