In the wake of a new presidential administration and new directives from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Congress needs to act urgently to pass bipartisan criminal justice reform that sees the humanity of the 2.2 million people locked behind bars and 70 million with a criminal record.46 signatures
One thing is very clear: 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. Fortunately, Democrats and Republicans have been vocal proponents to pass smart criminal justice legislation that reduces the prison populations and keeps our communities safer.
Two years ago, we launched #JusticeReformNOW, with 100+ celebrities and dozens of civil rights, criminal justice, and faith-based organizations joined, to call on Congress to work together and pass comprehensive criminal justice reform reforms.
The need for #JusticeReformNOW is important now more than ever.
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 call on Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to schedule a hearing on the issue of female incarceration and its impact on public safety and communities across America.1,522 signatures
The vast majority of incarcerated women are survivors of physical, sexual and emotional trauma. More than half are mothers or primary caregivers. Nearly 75% are incarcerated for crimes that result from drug addiction or financial necessity.
Prisons were not designed for women. Incarcerated women have unique health, hygiene and safety needs that are not adequately addressed by our current system. 2,000 women give birth while incarcerated, every year. Thousands more deal with the pain of being separated by hundreds of miles from their children and families.
Bipartisan criminal justice legislation introduced in both the House and Senate is a bright spot in an otherwise dysfunctional political atmosphere. A very important segment of the prison population is being left out of the conversation.
The Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act has offered solutions for the treatment incarcerated women. Yet, there have been no hearings scheduled.
Chairman Grassley and members of the Senate Judiciary: It's time to talk about Dignity for Incarcerated Women!
