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 there is an opportunity to change this. Right now, Congress is debating whether to pass criminal justice reform or wait until next year. The bipartisan First Step Act (S.3649) reforms our criminal justice system and gives returning citizens a second chance. Tell your members of Congress that reforming our criminal justice system and ending mass incarceration must be a priority.
Tip: Personalized emails have the most impact. Add a note explaining why hunger is important to you.
