The season of giving is here. Tuesday, December 1, is Giving Tuesday, and as you’re deciding what causes and organizations to support, don’t forget the millions of Americans impacted by crime and incarceration.
At a time of partisanship and division, The Council of State Governments finds ways to bring Republicans and Democrats together to make real improvements to state and local criminal justice systems. From the over-representation of people with mental illnesses in jails, to the unnecessary employment barriers imposed on people with criminal records, to the lack of support provided to crime victims, we advance reforms that improve lives and promote more effective use of government resources.
Our many initiatives and projects would not be possible without the support of people like you. This Giving Tuesday, please consider donating to this unique and impactful organization as we work to uphold justice, offer second chances, and ensure safe and healthy communities.
