If there’s anything you should take from this information, it’s that Mass Incarceration should be the issue that the United States of America needs to fix. However, the vast majority of Americans aren’t informed about the ugly reality of Mass Incarceration and exactly how many factors feed into it. Therefore, it is up to you to make an effort to start the conversation, because the first step to solving a problem is getting people to care about it.
Furthermore, it is up to you to make a positive change in your community. It doesn’t matter whether your a doctor, postal worker, teacher, or any other profession: you can make change where you are. If everyone takes the time to work against and speak out against Mass Incarceration, we can send it to the history books where it belongs. In doing so we set an example for those that come after us, showing that we will not tolerate systems that take away human rights, and we will not let this happen again.
