The United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the entire world - and who ends up detained has a lot more to do with race, sexual orientation and gender identity, mental illness, immigration status, and poverty than what they are detained for. We see criminalization in action when undocumented immigrants receive felony criminal convictions for re-entering the country after deportation, when police officers have quotas to meet for a number of arrests and fines and go into communities of color to meet those quotas, and when Muslims nationally live under enhanced surveillance in the name of "counter-terrorism." Hear from organizers on the front lines of resisting criminalization and learn where you can fit into this growing social movement.
