Reforming our nation's criminal justice system is critical to ending hunger and poverty in the United States. Families are directly impacted when loved ones are incarcerated, especially if they are serving long prison sentences.
But right now, there is an opportunity to change this. The bipartisan Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2017 (S.1917) can reform our criminal justice system and give returning citizens a second chance. Your members of Congress need to hear from you that reforming our criminal justice system and ending mass incarceration must be a priority in 2017.
Tip: Personalized emails have the most impact. Add a note explaining why hunger is important to you.
