Criminal Justice Reform

Alabama Appleseed documents and confronts drivers of poverty and inequity within Alabama's criminal punishment system, creates coalitions to identify and move evidence-based solutions, and changes systems through legislative action.

Grant Partner Since: 2020

NFL Funding Supports:

  • Challenging Alabama's "three-strikes" law, which permits life sentences for hundreds of people convicted of non-homicide crimes.
  • Fighting construction of 3 new mega prisons, which would add 10,000 prison cells in Alabama.
  • Research and advocacy to shift Alabama's historic reliance on incarceration rooted in structural racism.
