Resource Guide on Racial Justice and the Criminal Legal System

This document, compiled by the Northwestern Prison Education Program (NPEP), is an extensive—but by no means exhaustive—guide for those who would like to learn more about and take action on racial justice and the criminal legal system.


This guide is arranged in three parts:

1) “Learn.” A number of articles, books, and webinars that can help you educate yourself and others.

2) “Take Action.” Steps to become involved on the university, local or state level.

3) “Know and Support.” A number of local organizations that could use your support, financial and otherwise.
