The U.S. is the world's leader in incarceration. Our criminal justice system wastes money, damages lives, and disproportionately affects people of color. It's time for reform.
Tell your Senators to support the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act and start fixing our criminal justice system..

As your constituent, I strongly urge you to pass bail reform in our state.
Mass incarceration is crippling our society, with particularly severe impacts in communities of color. Overly harsh bail policies trap people in jail for committing low-level crimes, effectively punishing them for not being rich enough to free themselves. As a young American, I care about forming a society that treats all citizens equally, regardless of their background—implementing bail reform would put us on that path.
By abolishing cash-only bail and bail for nonviolent misdemeanors, our state can become the newest state to join the push for common-sense reforms. Please, pass bail reform now!
