TAKE ACTION: Call your member of Congress (1-888-623-4558). Tell him or her to act on criminal justice reform!
With 2.2 million people locked behind bars and 70 million with a criminal record, America's criminal justice system is broken.
Both parties got us into this mess - Democrats and Republicans championed tough-on-crime laws that led to an 800% increase in the number of people in federal prison over the past 30 years.
It will take both parties to get us out.
We launched the campaign for #JusticeReformNOW calling on Congress to work together and pass comprehensive criminal justice reform reforms. 100+ celebrities and dozens of civil rights, criminal justice, and faith-based organizations joined.
There are proven and effective policies passed at the state level that show we can reduce incarceration while simultaneously reducing crime and saving money. Poll after poll shows public support for these reforms, including reforming mandatory minimum sentencing, prioritizing treatment over incarceration, and reducing the number of people in our prisons and jails.
We need you to join this movement to unlock prison doors and open doors to new opportunity for the millions of men, women, and children that have fallen victim to the incarceration industry.
