Black Lives Matter.

 

Personal and Systems Accountability.

Lasting criminal justice reform can surface only if the conversation is centered on personal accountability AND systems accountability, i.e., the systematic ills that stem from racism and oppression--including cash bail, disparate sentencing regimes, prosecutorial discretion, unconstitutional arrest practices, the criminalization of drugs and drug-related crimes, and a myriad of other regimes that have created mass incarceration.
