#cut50's statement in response to Prison Reform
and Redemption Act Markup Delay
Jessica Jackson Sloan, National Director of #cut50
“Markup has been delayed because both sides realize we need to do the best bill possible since sentencing reform is unlikely. The current text is a step in the right direction and reflects great progress, but is unfinished at this point.”
#cut50 works to cut crime and incarceration in all 50 states by translating local needs into smart safety solutions. The organization brings together unlikely allies—formerly and currently incarcerated individuals, community members, crime survivors, local elected officials, and law enforcement--to keep communities safe and families together.
