**This is a monthly recurring event designed for people who are new to the Campaign for Smart Justice**

The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona is presenting the Campaign for Smart Justice Welcome Session. The goal of the Campaign for Smart Justice is to reduce Arizona’s prison and jail populations by 50 percent while fighting racial disparities in the justice system. This presentation is a brief introduction into the harms Arizona’s criminal justice has on thousands of people and their families. We will walk participants through the entire process of incarceration to fully immerse the audience in the realities of our cruel and ineffective system. Throughout the presentation there will be moments to reflect and discuss some of the most troubling aspects of the criminal justice system. This will lead us into a discussion of how to take immediate action to transform the way society approaches justice.
