Hello <<First Name>>,
Midterm elections are over, and prison reform is still on the minds of many elected officials. In California, Proposition 47 has passed, changing the fates of thousands of prisoners across the state. How will the state review cases and re-sentence offenders in a timely manner?
In addition, learn about Yates v. United States, currently being heard by the Supreme Court. Should federal charges be filed for minor offenses? Take a look at efforts to forbid employers from asking applicants about prior convictions for most jobs, and get the facts on the link between special education and incarcerated minors.
In our video of the week, hear why United States Attorney General Eric Holder feels disproportionate sentences for minorities are a civil rights issue as well as his views on sentencing reform.
