Every night in this country, about 450,000 people are jailed only because they cannot buy their freedom. This widespread pretrial detention is just one way in which our criminal system targets and punishes people struggling to make ends meet – even as they are presumed innocent. Founded in 2016, CRC challenges wealth-based and race-based systems of oppression.
