LONG THREAD: With today's announcement of substantial investment in data-driven pretrial criminal legal system reform, we are long-overdue for a broad conversation on addressing community needs, the role of philanthropy, & the ethics of certain models of social science research.
We hope this will be a starting point, though it appears the train has already left the station:

Good quality research. Evidence-based. Data-driven.

These buzzwords are quite popular in #cjreform circles, among nonprofits, researchers, foundations, & elected officials.
Yet no one required such rigorous investigation to incarcerate millions of people, including hundreds of thousands pretrial, which has caused generations of harm.

Research did not create our present criminal punishment system.

Racism & fear did.
