My name is Tara Debek, and I'm writing for the One by 1 blog to promote a system of justice and incarceration that better serves our citizens. I believe that we are doing a significant disservice to those who are victims of a broken criminal justice system, and through the work of organizations like One by 1 we can work towards a better future.
