Social workers are expected to advocate for and on behalf of clients. Currently, Delaware’s Criminal Justice system is unfair and unjust. For example, African Americans make up between 22% and 24% of the state’s population but 60% of the inmates in prison. Furthermore, approximately 75% of the youth in the juvenile justice system are Black. To advocate for prison reform in Delaware, write a letter to the Attorney General requesting her support to: a) Reform Delaware’s Criminal Code; and, 2) Reform Delaware’s Bail system. Of course you will have to research information regarding these two issues which we also will discuss in class.
