Facing Protests, Ford Foundation President Reasserts Organization’s Commitment to Ending Mass Incarceration

Ford Foundation President Darren Walker has published a response to New York City’s criminal justice community, which is organizing the protest at the Ford Foundation today. He writes: “The Ford Foundation is unwavering in its commitment to ending mass incarceration. We envision a world where people are not locked up in cages, treated inhumanely, and stripped of their dignity. To work toward this goal we support a range of initiatives and organizations working to eradicate the harmful footprint of mass incarceration and protect and promote the humanity and dignity of all people.”
