"Ideas From Today's Leaders", yes indeed! And Topeka K. Sam is just that, a leader & warrior in our community.
"The American public has decisively concluded that our approach to criminal justice isn’t working.
Mass incarceration is the civil rights crisis of our time. The racial disparities pervasive in our justice system compound at every juncture: African Americans are more likely to be stopped by police, arrested, detained before trial, and given harsher sentences than whites. Worse, the disparities in our justice system perpetuate racial inequity in our society more broadly.
NATIONAL DAY OF EMPATHY ~ POWERED BY #CUT50 is a national bipartisan initiative to safely and smartly reduce our incarcerated population by 50 percent over the next 10 years. The Dream Corps’ #CUT50 initiative will be hosting the National Day of Empathy, a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by the criminal justice system. In partnership with our network of criminal justice reform organizations in all 50 states and uplifting the stories of those who have been impacted by the criminal justice system, we aim to:
● Build empathy in our governors, state legislators, and other policymakers to act on criminal justice
● Humanize through personal interaction with impacted persons of the criminal justice system and
show legislators that this is about the lives of the impacted people, their spouses, their children,
their parents, and their friends, crime survivors, and their communities.
