Just Futures Law also released their policy platform yesterday, Defunding the Dragnet. You can check it out here: We’re excited to share the full platform with you all. Our hope is that this document promotes a decarceral, anti-deportation, and surveillance free-agenda, and is used by organizers and policymakers who are actively working to reduce surveillance and criminalization.
