We need an extensive and systemic collection of racial data
Our criminal justice system unfairly and disproportionately lands more black and brown Vermonters in prison than others. Without publicly available data, we face significant challenges to addressing disparities and advancing meaningful reforms.
That is why we need an extensive and systemic collection of racial data about everything from school suspensions to police use of force, along with traffic stops and all court processes, to address disparities and advance meaningful reforms.
