Criminal Justice Reform

People on the left and right agree; America’s criminal justice system is in need of repair. Too many families are being broken apart and children left without parents because of a one size fits all approach to crime and punishment. For those who are looking for re-entry, we have to remove government imposed obstacles to opportunities for ex- offenders. Everyone has a stake in the safety and security of our communities so it’s time for everyone to come to the table and start talking about solutions that ensure fairness and respect civil liberties for all Americans.The current judicial system disproportionately affects disadvantaged and minorities. Reaching America is working on ideas for a more just court system ensuring fair and equal treatment for all especially the least advantaged.
