Society-First seeks to educate the public on how mass incarceration affects every citizen whether they have been the victim, perpetrator, incarcerated, or even had a parking ticket. The reforms of one group affect us all thus we aim to make information our strongest ally in the fight most do not even know exists.
We seek to enlighten the people about the sweeping effects that lead many to prison and how change is paramount to our future. How we can develop new ideologies in ridding our nation of a culture that is responsible for its victimization. A culture, not a people, that is behind the cold detachment that has created this rampant criminality so ingrained in many of our citizens.
To understand not only what brings those to victimize, but also how we can prevent such from taking place at all. That when the prison is needed, it will be efficient in cultivating people into productive members of society... and not simply warehousing them indefinitely. A society that takes no ownership in its problems, is a society that will never identify its solutions.
Society-First is a social networking site that seeks to bring light to the people who are most affected by the criminal justice system, our communities. It is essential our justice system becomes a productive part of society itself and is imperative we find the best-laid plan in reforming it. Justice can NO LONGER wear a blindfold, she must open up her eyes to see what she has BECOME.
