We're excited that both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to pass the First Step Act! On December 21st, 2018 President Trump signed the bill into law.
Thanks to the First Step Act, the federal prison population over the next 10 years will be reduced from 180,000 to 150,000 -- that's a huge deal. And this win opens up new space for what's politically possible in this country.
We plan to win more criminal justice reform on both a state and federal level, but to keep up this momentum in 2019 we need your support.
