Clinton will be in Atlanta on Friday to launch “African Americans for Hillary.” At the event, she will begin rolling out her criminal justice proposals, which will focus on policing, incarceration and re-entry to society. Clinton’s proposals will focus on ending what she has called the “era of mass incarceration” that has disproportionately affected communities of color.
