BOSTON, Mass. — Community Resources for Justice in cooperation with the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassINC) and The Massachusetts Criminal Justice Reform Coalition have published a report on costs of the current approach to criminal justice.
The report emphasizes how important it is to evolve parole and probation rather than invest in prisons and impose mandatory sentences.
The Massachusetts Criminal Justice Reform Coalition was formed in 2012 and represents a diverse group of prosecutors and corrections practitioners, defense lawyers and community organizers.
Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassINC) is a non-partisan think tank and civic organization focused on research, journalism, and civic engagement.
