Every night in this country, about 450,000 people are caged 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. We’ve won groundbreaking litigation challenging the rise of debtors’ prisons, abusive private probation schemes, and wealth-based pre-trial detention. CRC works closely with community partners and is committed to fundamentally change our country’s approach to the criminal system. We approach our work with urgency.
