Criminal Justice Task Force

CDT’s Criminal Justice Task Force participates in a statewide Campaign for Criminal and Economic Justice focusing on replacing the carceral state with programs that treat people as human beings no matter their transgressions. We also work to change unfair and ineffective laws, such as mandatory minimums for drug offenses.
