Prison Reform USA is an organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia that focuses on and advocates for prison reform in America. We believe that the criminal justice system in America needs to be completely reformed, particularly pertaining to drug use and non-violent crimes. We believe that those who have drug abuse issues or addiction issues do not belong in jail. They belong in rehabilitation programs.
We believe that the criminal justice system is creating more criminals than anything. First offense marijuana or cocaine offenders are going into prisons and coming out hardened criminals.
Furthermore, we feel it is completely unjust that we live in a country where a substance is legal in some states but worthy of a prison sentence in other states. We believe this needs to be changed, and we will do everything in our power to change these laws.
