Incarceration: Progress Before the Election
Even in an election year where little gets done, Congress can pass meaningful criminal justice reform. Senators and representatives from both sides of the aisle agree: our criminal justice system does not work, breaks families and communities, and costs the taxpayer far too much. These bills move us away from a system of retribution to a system of redemption.
Don't let politics get in the way of Congress creating a more just criminal justice system!

Please help bring the Sentencing Reform Act of 2015 (H.R. 3713) and the Recidivism Risk Reduction Act (H.R. 759) House floor and vote for their passage.
The broken criminal justice system is an urgent priority for our community. Disproportionately long prison sentences for certain crimes, combined with laws that prevent successful re-entry into civilian life, have created a system of mass incarceration that unfairly impacts poor communities and people of color.
These bills together reduce several lengthy mandatory minimum sentences, give judges more discretion, and lower the population in federal prisons. The bills have strong bipartisan support. Please work with your colleagues on both sides of the aisle to help pass them into law.
