Hi Friends — I just uploaded some items to AllianceConnect, including the “ask” from Ecumenical Advocacy Days 2015. A short summary:
We call on Congress to reform federal criminal justice and immigrant detention policies toward the goal of ending unfair, unnecessary, costly and racially biased mass incarceration:
•Adopt criminal justice and sentencing reform policies that incorporate an end to mandatory minimum sentencing;
•Eliminate the detention bed quota for immigrants and implement alternatives to immigrant detention.
It would be great if members of RJM Community joined our ecumenical partners on Monday April 20 in advocating with Senators and Representatives for the legislation included in the document.
