Thank you for giving what you can! Kevin paid his entry fee, and your support will go 100% to promoting a society that respects the dignity of every person and safeguards justice for allthrough the incredible work of the Vera Institute of Justice.
The Vera Institute of Justice work every day to close mass incarceration’s front door, end the use of solitary confinement; restore the opportunity for post-secondary education to prisoners; support children and families affected by the justice system; and deliver justice, safety, and fairness to a more diverse America.
Vera transforms justice systems – to ensure fairness, promote safety, and strengthen communities. And the American criminal justice system is broken.
- With less than five percent of the world’s population, the United States incarcerates nearly a quarter of its prisoners.
- Minorities and the poor are disproportionately harmed.
- Our pretrial system leaves people behind bars indefinitely when they cannot afford bail.
- An estimated 100,000 people are locked away in solitary confinement.
Reforming the justice system has recently become a top priority, yet real change requires deep knowledge and policy experience, and the skill and credibility to drive reform from inside. Vera partners with government leaders who share our vision, expanding their sense of the possible. We foster innovation and connect policy to evidence – all to institute practical, concrete, and far-reaching change that improves lives and repairs communities.
Thank you for supporting *Kevin, Marathon, Justice* and the Vera Institute of Justice!
