“The United States has by far the world’s highest incarceration rate. With 5% of the world’s population, our country now houses nearly 25% of the world’s reported prisoners. We currently incarcerate 756 inmates per 100,000 residents, a rate nearly five times the average worldwide of 158 for every 100,000. … All told, about one in every 31 adults in the United States is in prison, in jail, or on supervised release.”

Stay informed, take action.
Thank you Senator Webb!
