CJCJ in the news: San Francisco Criminal Justice Leaders Push for Change at Race Summit

San Francisco Criminal Justice Leaders Push for Change at Race Summit:

The Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice found black women in San Francisco were 13 times more likely to be arrested than their counterparts of other races. The city’s arrest rate of African American women is about four times the state average, according to the report.

“We really haven’t heard any explanation for why the city is so out of line for the rest of the state, and as far as we can tell, the rest of the country in terms of its disproportionate African American arrest rates,” CJCJ senior researcher Mike Males told KQED in an interview. “And another thing is they’ve gotten worse over time.”
