Discover why Whatcom County is A Pioneer in jail reform.
Our Community refuses to endorse mass incarceration, because privateering is the business model that underlays it. It creates A profiteering motive that undercuts the local economy, harms citizens and their families, consumes taxpayer dollars and creates poverty. This is born out by statistics and deep research. This video is A short course that explains the problem to the average person. This powerpoint was created for civic education, so that the community could understand the school to prison pipeline from a business standpoint.
Please say no to building bigger jails and instead invest in restorative economic solutions.
