Los Angeles County recently created an Alternatives to Incarceration Initiative that outlined 26 new recommendations for scaling diversion and care programs that will minimize the number of individuals who enter the jail system. Incarceration should only be a last report, particularly given the enormous racial disparities endemic throughout the criminal justice system. FUSE will work with community members and County agencies to implement these recommendations and create regional pilot programs that can be replicated in other communities nationwide.
