About me

Location Denver, Colorado, United States
Introduction The mission of Communities United Against Mass Incarceration (CUAMI) is to end the system of Mass Incarceration. Mass Incarceration inflicts systemic violence; therefore we must deal with it systemically. We exist to unite all those organizations and communities in Colorado that are either directly impacted by Mass Incarceration, working to end it, or both, with the aims of unifying movements and fostering broader collaboration. Given that structural inequality, concentrated poverty, and a culture of punitive social control have disenfranchised large portions of the population as part of the system of Mass Incarceration, we prioritize the struggles of those directly impacted by the system. And though many of our individual efforts are successful, together we wield far more power.
