CPAF Joins with Koch Industries to Support Criminal Justice Reform

As one of its first projects, the Civic Participation Action Fund (CPAF) joined Koch Industries in supporting the US Justice Action Network (USJAN), a (c)4 arm of the bipartisan Coalition for Public Safety.

USJAN is working in several states and at the federal level on legislative initiatives to reduce mass incarceration and to make the criminal justice system fairer for all. One of CPAF’s goals is to reduce the disparate impact of the nation’s sentencing and incarceration policies on people of color. Given the enormity of the problem and the institutional biases in the current system, criminal justice reform will likely be a high priority for CPAF during its 5 year time frame.
