Justice Means Sentences Should Fit the Crime!
In 1980, the federal prison system managed 25,000 people. Today, it manages nearly 190,000 men and women and many facilities are dangerously overcrowded. About half of our federal prisoners are serving lengthy sentences for drug offenses.
Sentencing men and women to punishment that fits the crime is fundamental to a restorative approach to justice and critical to the wellbeing of families and communities. Urge your legislators to support federal sentencing reform today!
