The United States incarcerates more people, in both absolute numbers and per capita, than any other nation in the world and continues to expand our criminal justice system. The ACLU campaign for Smart Justice is an unprecedented, multi-year effort to reduce the US jail and prison population by 50 percent and to combat racial disparities
ACLU employee and IUP alumnus Terrell Thomas is the Senior Field Organizer for this campaign and the executive director of the Isiah Project and My Brother's Keeper. Terrell works on fixing the racial disparities inherent in the criminal justice system and will be talking about his work with the ACLU.

This November, you will have the opportunity to vote in municipal elections, or what are commonly known as “off-year elections.” These are elections for positions like district attorney, commissioners, sheriff, auditor, magisterial district judges, and state superior court judges.What do these people do?

In this program, students will learn about elections at the local and state levels, why elections are important, what types of issues might be of greatest significance to college-age voters, and how local and state elected officials can affect these issues.
