dc.description.abstract The United States holds 5% of the World’s population, yet 25% of the prison population. Many research suggests that mass incarceration is a negative epidemic the United States faces because it is racially biased and disproportionately impacts people of color and lower income people, and it is extremely costly and destructive to our economy. I share results from plenty of research that show we will save up to billions of dollars by releasing nonviolent drug offenders, which in turn will help with the problem of overcrowding in prisons. I also share studies that have shown rehabilitation as a greater alternative versus criminalization. en_US
