The U.S. Senate is on the verge of a historic vote for criminal justice reform, and your voice will help bring us closer to the finish line. Will you please take a minute to call your Senators right now?
As you know, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill this summer that would create a national criminal justice commission, and the Senate Judiciary Committee has also supported this bill. Now we need the full Senate to pass this legislation, and we need your help urging Senators in MA to prioritize this vote.
Click here and we���ll connect you directly to your Senator���s office so you can join the call for action on this important legislation.
The proposed criminal justice commission legislation was introduced last year by Virginia Senator Jim Webb and 15 co-sponsors from both political parties. The resulting bipartisan commission would review and identify effective criminal justice policies and make recommendations for reform.
This commission could do critical work to examine why wrongful convictions happen and recommend improvements that would help prevent miscarriages of justice and increase public safety.
Thank you for your commitment to justice.
