The No New Jim Crow Seattle Campaign is dedicated to ending mass incarceration in America, beginning in Seattle/King County. Our methods are collaborative, creative, social, political, economic, and non-violent. We are working to build a society based not on punitive laws, imprisonment, illness and oppression, but on a transformative, compassionate sense of justice and respect for the dignity and well being of all people.
