Commemorating 50 Years of Mass Incarceration: Second Chance Videos

The era of mass incarceration and the vast expansion of the nation’s criminal legal system over the past 50 years has produced a corresponding increase in the number of people with a criminal record. An estimated 77.7 million individuals – nearly 1 out of every 3 American adults – has a criminal record. At the same time, the collateral consequences of a conviction have become more severe and permanent, affecting virtually every aspect of an individual’s life. NACDL partners and advocates reflect on 50 Years of Mass Incarceration and their work to promote second chances in their communities.
