End Mass Incarceration Project Welcomes You

 

The End Mass Incarceration Project is part of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.  It is dedicated to addressing the historically high, and racially disparate, levels of incarceration in Washington by reducing the number of people incarcerated and the lengths of their sentences and increasing the alternatives to incarceration.

The Sentencing Project (2020)
