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 legislation or wait until next year. The bipartisan First Step Act reforms our criminal justice system and gives returning citizens a second chance. Your members of Congress need to hear from you that passing the First Step Act must be a priority!
Tip: Personalized emails have the most impact. Add a note explaining why hunger is important to you.
Dear [members of Congress],
