America’s Crisis of Incarceration
It’s time to catalyze a transformative approach to justice.
For more than 70 years, Public Welfare Foundation has adapted to meet the challenges of changing times through its mission – to advance justice and opportunity for people in need.
With over 2.3 million people in America’s jails and prisons, another 18 million with a felony conviction, and an estimated 70 million people with criminal justice contact, America is facing a crisis of incarceration. At this critical moment in history, Public Welfare Foundation is focusing on catalyzing a transformative approach to justice that is community-led, restorative, and racially just.
