Together, we can take the first step towards fixing the broken criminal justice system!


(202) 224-3121


Tell your member of Congress you support the FIRST STEP Act because it will:


  • Ban the shackling of women during childbirth.
  • Place people within 500 driving miles of their families.
  • Important provisions for women, children and families.
  • Provide major incentives to pursue life-changing classes.
  • Requires the BOP to assist with obtaining IDs prior to release.
  • Give people in prison who are elderly or terminally ill a pathway home.
  • Allow formerly incarcerated people to serve as volunteers and mentors.
  • Give thousands of men and women an opportunity to come home sooner.
  • Authorizes $250 million over five years for development and expansion of programs.



Can you call your member of Congress today and ask them to take the first step towards fixing our broken criminal justice system by voting YES on the FIRST STEP Act?
