The ‘Is it a Crime to be Poor?’ Alliance

We are a diverse group of people who, either individually or as part of their organisation, care deeply about the criminalisation of poverty.

Criminalisation of poverty is also economically and socially costly and has negative spill over effects on the whole of society.
