Nobody wins when former prisoners fail to adjust to life outside, or worse, end up back behind bars. 97% of all prison inmates will eventually return home.
The FIRST STEP Act helps to prepare inmates for their release, making them better neighbors and keeping our communities safe.
President Trump and his allies in Congress developed a proposal to fix our failing prison system. Known as the FIRST STEP Act, the legislation was approved in the House of Representatives by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 360-59.
However the Senate has failed to act on it.
Tell Senator McConnell to allow a vote on the FIRST STEP Act before they leave town.It will prepare offenders to be good neighbors and make all of our neighborhoods safer.
