Mass incarceration is the civil rights crisis of our time, and the key to fixing it is to start right here in Portland by making our justice system fairer, more responsive, and more transparent for victims, justice-involved people and our communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our immigration attorneys helped more than 300 clients in danger of deportation, our Women’s Justice Project assisted 20 women, and our Youth Justice Project worked with dozens of young men and women sentenced under Measure 11. We had over 1,700 people attend educational events that we hosted in 2018.
