"The Criminal Law Reform Project seeks an end to excessively harsh crime policies that result in mass incarceration and criminalization and stand in the way of a just, equal, and humane society. To reduce the number of people entering the criminal justice system, CLRP focuses on preventing overincarceration and overcriminalization at the “front end” of the criminal justice system."
