#cut50 Statement on the Passage of the FIRST STEP Act in the House
Van Jones, President and Co-founder of #cut50
"This was a massive victory for common sense. We finally have broken the logjam and ended the gridlock on this issue. Let's get something done in the Senate, then come back for more next year."
#cut50 works to cut crime and incarceration in all 50 states by translating local needs into smart safety solutions. The organization brings together unlikely allies—formerly and currently incarcerated individuals, community members, crime survivors, local elected officials, and law enforcement--to keep communities safe and families together.
