Ask your Senators to support the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act and urge Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring it to the floor for a vote! Last fall, a bipartisan group of Senators introduced the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (S. 2123), the most significant criminal justice reform the United States Congress has considered in decades. The bill offers sensible reforms to our criminal justice system designed to reverse mass incarceration, including reducing mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenses and examining stronger recidivism reduction programs in federal prisons.
