Event description
Mass Incarceration and the Excessive Probation in Georgia

About this Event

Georgia has the highest number of people under correctional control than anywhere else in the world. Lengthy supervision sentences added on to already lengthy prison terms contribute to Georgia’s alarming correctional control population. Although recent legislation has made reforms to the state’s community supervision system, Georgia’s adult probation rate remains among the highest and lengthiest in the country. This advocacy day will help attendees better understand how these failed policies are impacting communities in Georgia and empower Georgia citizens to demand more effective alternatives to incarceration beyond probation and community supervision.
