#cut50 seeks to reduce the U.S. prison population by half and facilitate relationships between leaders from both parties, tech entrepreneurs, and criminal justice activists so they can identify solutions to mass incarceration and effective alternative sentencing programs. Through a series of community-focused summits and workshops, #cut50 will increase general awareness of the burden mass incarceration puts on society and the colossal waste of resources being expended in the current criminal justice system.
