This white paper is the joint product of nineteen professors of criminal law and procedure who share a common conviction: that the path toward a more just, effective, and reasonable criminal system in the United States is to democratize American criminal justice. In the name of the movement to  democratize criminal justice, we herein set forth thirty proposals for democratic criminal justice reform.
