The Criminal Justice Policy Program at Harvard Law School is dedicated to advancing reform of the criminal legal system. As part of this mission, they have created the 50-State Criminal Justice Debt Reform Builder, a resource designed to help policymakers and advocates understand and reform criminal justice debt policies across the United States. The online tool provides an interactive map and state-by-state summaries of criminal justice debt laws and policies, including fees, fines, restitution, and other financial obligations imposed on individuals involved in the criminal legal system. The resource aims to support data-driven policy reforms and advocacy efforts to reduce the harms caused by criminal justice debt.
