THE REAL CRIME: MASS CRIMINALIZATION OF OUR COMMUNITIES

 

Everyday our families and communities are torn apart due to mass incarceration, immigration detention and deportation. Black and brown people, citizens and immigrants alike, are being demonized, criminalized and locked up in prisons and detention centers at unprecedented rates. This “New Jim Crow” is a conscious government policy of social control that has become a normal part of our society. We at the Black Alliance for Just Immigration have just released this short video to challenge #TheRealCrime of mass criminalization of our communities.
