70 million Americans 18+ have a criminal record.

70 Million documents how locals are addressing the role of jails in their backyards. Our reporters travel around the country and hear from people directly impacted by their encounter with jails and adjacent policies, and from those committed to reversing those effects on people and communities. Specifically, we chronicle the progress ground-up efforts have made in diversion, bail reform, recidivism, adoption of technology and other crucial aspects of the move toward decarceration at local levels.
