America’s criminal justice system should keep communities safe, treat people fairly, and use fiscal resources wisely. ACLU-TN advocates for a criminal justice system that fosters public safety by reducing mass incarceration and ensuring police accountability. We work to ensure that constitutional protections are afforded to everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity or income. We also confront discriminatory or unfair police practices and challenge the broken death penalty system.
ACLU-TN will host a "Freedom Forum" in Knoxville on Thursday, March 1 on criminal justice reform, voting rights and community activism. The forum will take place at the Knox County Public Library.
