  • If the risk is low, let them go: Urge the legislature to take a second look at inmates who are low risk.  H.623 (2016 session) increases parole eligibility for older inmates.  (Call your state senator and urge support.)
  • Locked Up & #ShippedAway: Urge the legislature to take steps to reduce the prison populationt, bring home out-of-state inmates, and end the contract with GEO Group, the for-profit prison corporation that houses them.
