UNC YAL’s Incarceration Nation

UNC YAL did worrrkkkk.

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Incarceration Nation event drew many to learn about criminal justice reform. Students were aghast to hear about mandatory minimum sentencing, and that 93% of people we lock up are for non-violent crimes.

One of the more powerful moments of the day was when a lady came and told us her story about mandatory minimum sentencing. She gave students a real life representation of how unfair and wrong the prison system can be.

Though the day wasn’t entirely a somber affair. UNC YAL is particularly proud of gaining some little future liberty lovers.
