PETITION: Tell your Senator to demand that Sen. Mitch McConnell bring the Sentencing Reform and CORRECTIONS Act to the floor!

20151019_133356

The Sentencing Reform and CORRECTIONS Act, S. 2123, is a strongly bipartisan piece of legislation that passed out of the Judiciary Committee with an overwhelming 15-5 vote. But Mitch McConnell has not yet brought it to a vote on the Senate floor. The only way he will bring it to a vote is if he hears other Senators demanding it, and those Senators will only tell him to bring it to a vote if their constituents- that's you- express to them how important the Sentencing Reform and CORRECTIONS Act is to you.


Support Fair and Healing Justice for our Youth

JJDPA-re-auth-Dec-2015

This week, Congress is in full negotiations regarding re-authorization of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). Youth who are locked up are separated from their families, and many witness or experience violence. These youth struggle when they get out, trying to complete high school, get jobs, housing, or go to college. The Act requires states to keep youth separated from adults prior to trial as well as in prison, invests in alternatives to incarceration, and provides youth support necessary for successful rehabilitation and re-entry into their communities -- among many other important functions.

Tell Congress to Fix the Sentencing Reform Act!

We're asking you to tell Congress to amend H.R. 3713 so that it doesn't create new mandatory drug penalties, expand existing mandatory minimums associated with the "War on Drugs" to whole new classes of people who aren't currently allowed to be charged with those penalties, prevent certain offenders from benefiting from the bill's sentence reductions, or prevent those already sentenced under the former 100:1 crack-to-powder sentencing disparity from even being able to apply to the court to seek relief.

Thanks to all your hard work, Congress passed some meaningful provisions of the Youth PROMISE Act as part of the final version of the Every Student Succeeds Act, S. 1177, creating school based PROMISE plans. It is likely to be signed by the President soon.
