The Promise of Justice Initiative supports The First Step Act as a beginning step in the reduction of recidivism and the promotion of public safety.
PJI hopes that The First Step Act acts as a catalyst to create more meaningful sentencing reform as we hope to dramatically change the lives in incarcerated people and their families, and expand accountability and oversight of the federal prison system.
PJI envisions a criminal justice system that recognizes the humanity of the 2.2 million people currently behind bars in America. HR 3356 falls in line with our mission by improving the conditions for incarcerated people, reducing the amount of time people spend in prison, and provide meaningful opportunities to successfully transition into their communities.
