Beyond the ADA

Twenty-eight years after the ADA's passage, much work remains. People with disabilities face poverty rates nearly three times higher than people without disabilities. They are disproportionately likely to live and work in conditions that are hazardous to their health and are especially vulnerable to extreme weather events, which are only becoming more frequent due to climate change. And they are massively overrepresented in our nation’s prisons and jails, with people behind bars at least three times as likely to report a disability as the general population.

Ending the War on Marijuana

It is time to rethink the outdated marijuana policies that have contributed to mass incarceration. A new CAP poll shows nearly 70% of Americans support marijuana legalization. Cities and states are starting the change; it’s time for the rest of the country to catch up. Join Thinking CAP podcast hosts Igor Volsky and Michele Jawando for a discussion with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Weldon Angelos, who was sentenced to 55 years incarceration as a first time offender for marijuana sales due to harsh federal mandatory minimum sentences.
