With 96,000 people behind bars, Pennsylvania has the highest incarceration rate in the Northeast. When factoring in people who are on probation or parole, Pennsylvania has the second-highest rate of people under correctional control in the country.
It’s far past time to reform our criminal legal system and challenge the racism that keeps it from being just.
