It's Time for #JusticeReformNOW

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.

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.

    I’m a RN at county jail for 5 years after spending 20 years in hospital. I will never be the same after seeing the things I have seen. Justice and profits can never coexist. No one should make money from people in bondage.
