Join us in the fight to promote a more humane and equitable U.S. criminal legal system. Your awareness, activism, and support is vital to making a difference to the individuals, families, and communities impacted by mass incarceration.
Changing laws and policies to end mass incarceration require a mass movement. Here are ways you can engage at the federal, state, and local levels.
Support the Safer Detention Act!
The Safer Detention Act would give aging and terminally people in federal prisons the opportunity to seek compassionate relief. It would also reauthorize and expand the Elderly Home Confinement Pilot Program, which would provide another pathway for elderly and sick people to leave prison.
Stop Congress from Building Another Prison in Kentucky
The construction of a new federal prison in Kentucky is a costly and unnecessary proposal, motivated by a desire to create a federal jobs program in eastern Kentucky, not to accommodate the actual needs of the Bureau of Prisons or public safety. Tell your federal lawmakers to cancel funding for another prison in Kentucky!
