Criminal Justice Reform

Our prisons and jails are full of nonviolent drug offenders and people who are incarcerated because they can’t afford a fine or bond. This overburdens our criminal justice system and disproportionately impacts communities of color. We must reform sentencing, ensure those who are incarcerated are rehabilitated and prepared to reenter society, reduce recidivism and end the 50-year failed war on drugs, which has treated a medical problem with a criminal justice solution.
