Action Alert: Pass the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act

Urge your Senator to Support this Bi-Partisan Legislation

Click HERE to send a email to your Senator

Our beliefs direct us to protect the dignity and well-being of everyone impacted by the criminal justice system. That commitment extends to people who are victimized by crime, as well as to those who commit offenses. Current federal law demands harsh punishment for even low-level drug offenses. The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act seeks to restore proportionality and fairness to federal sentencing and aid in rehabilitation for people in prison. Tell your senators to support this bipartisan criminal justice reform legislation. 
The legislation has twenty six co-sponsors; if your Senator is among them consider thanking them for their commitment to justice and mercy.
