Defending Democracy

From working on voting rights and access, to prison gerrymandering, to ensuring the will of voters is respected, ALC is involved in defending the democratic process, especially for currently and formerly incarcerated people, and for communities heavily impacted by the criminal punishment system.

We educate the public about issues related to the criminal punishment system that are influenced or controlled by elected officials and political systems, and work to ensure that Black and Brown people in traditionally marginalized communities have access to democratic institutions, and that the choices they make at the ballot box are protected.
